Toddler Theme Day-Rainbows

This week's toddler theme is Rainbows. This was the perfect opportunity to review all of the colors. And really, what little girl doesn't love rainbows? I know mine do! So here are a few activities for fun with rainbows!

A few months ago we made rainbows out of paper plates. You can check that out here.

Today, we had a color hunt. I called out the colors of the rainbow, one at a time, and the girls would race around the room to find something that was that color. What fun:)

We also made sand art. Well, it was actually colored salt. We filled plastic containers with coarse salt and added a few drops of food coloring. Next, we got to shake, shake, shake until the color was evenly distributed. Next, we layered the colored salt in "rainbow order". (Felicia didn't exactly do this because she was to excited to wait for the next color)

The girls are so proud of their "Rainbow in a Jar"! I think they turned out fabulous:)

  7. Hey SITS-er, your great at the craft thing and the kids. Great awards to you. Look up paint toast and you can dye rice or noodles with viniger and food coloring. Look up online to see how. Love the idea of muffin tins for meals. Veggies for a kid who don't like them. Try v-8 drinks. Always coat them in cheese. Put broccoli in the mac and cheese real fine.
    Oh and I love the music. Adore the back to pooh corner massively.
