Who would have known that learning your colors could be this much fun?  We got really hands-on by experimenting with mixing colors.  We used shaving cream and paint to blend primary colors to make new colors.  We got messy, learned a ton, and had a blast!

The kids also enjoyed spraying water on their art work to watch it smear and blend. 

The highlight of our 'Color theme' week would have to be making colored milk bubbles.  We put the food coloring of each child's choice in cups of milk and had the kids blow colorful bubbles that overflowed to create a cool design.  The students were so cute laughing and giggling and loved trying to make their bubble tower the tallest.   


Here we're showing off our colorful painted yarn art project.

For a fun gross motor activity we filled plastic jugs with colored water and had the children carry each bottle across the yard and place it on a sheet of matching colored paper.  We had fun racing each other. 

Apple Theme

Apples and fall just seem to go together.  We had fun playing 'Ring Around the Apple Tree', and learning the simple math skill of adding by having students place a stem on each foam apple cutout and then a leaf on each stem. Making our own apple trees during our art center was also a big hit, and we loved playing at our water table investigating what happens to apples when we manipulate them in water for science.
