C is for Colorful Crayons

Alphabet Practice-

Numeral- 12

Name Practice- I will cut out squares of the rainbow and add a letter to each color.  First letter is red, second is orange, third is yellow, then green, blue, and purple. Then add pink, brown, grey, black (write on with white crayon.) 

Gather your color books:



Music-  Red Story Bots

Art~ Hand print Wreath 

and yes I know these say play dough mats, but I want to use them anyways lol 

I hope to paint one page daily and then paint Froglet's hand for the color wreath. Today pain the red bird.

Math/Life Skills/Science Color Wheel

Math/Life Skills/Science- Milk and Soap experiment

Pour some milk into a shallow dish drop food coloring in, not touching, touch Q-tip in some dish soap. Put soaked Q-tip into bowl. Watch it swirl!

Snack- Oranges or carrots

Thursday- Yellow

Fingerplays- Yellow Story Bots

Art- Brown Bear Pictures  (BBP) yellow duck

Math/Life Skills/Science- White carnation colored water

So the actual science will take a while, but I was thinking that I could drop some food coloring into my test tubes (I got some at Dollar Tree) but you could also just use glasses, and have Froglet add the water. I am hoping that there will be a change later and be just as amazed!  

I've done this experiment with daisies as well :)   

Snack- Pineapple or bananas


Fingerplay- Green Story Bots

Art- BBP

Math/Life Skills/Science Color Matching Fish
I am going to color on the clips and have Froglet match.
Really any color puzzle will do though!  

Snack- Pears or Grapes

At some point, I want to add different colored rice/pasta to a sensory bin or I  may just add them all together on day one!

Math/Life Skills/Science Color Tubes I got them at Walmart.

Don't have color tubes? Print these out and laminate. You could sort in a relish tray or bowls. For older children, simply write on index cards in that color and have them sort.

Snack- Cinnamon Chex Mix

I found this recipe so long ago... now it's lost!  It was from generic chex cereal. I think it is:

1/4 cup white sugar
1t cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
4 cups chex cereal
1/2 cup raisins

Melt butter in electric skillet.  Add cereal and raisins. Coat well.  Mix cinnamon and sugar.  Add to skillet.  Stir to coat. Store in bag/sealed container.

I have NO idea if those are the amounts.  I have searched high and low for the actual recipe both in my home and on Pinterest with no luck :(
