Weekly Kids Activities Newsletter:
Teaching your kids about color
Happy new year to you and your family!
The new year started with a flurry of colors (all the beautiful colors of the fireworks and decorations). So I thought it's very appropriate to focus on activities that teaches and explores colors for this week's newsletter.
This is such an interesting and easy activity. You freeze a block of ice and let your kids paint it.
Explode. Color change. Wow! “Let’s do it again, mommy”, your kids say as they watch the magic of a color changing volcano unfold.
Most kids have seen and participated in traditional volcano eruption kids activities but most haven’t seen a color changing volcano activity. It’s so easy to take two colors and let the volcano change to the mixed colors.
In this activity your kids will use pom poms and a serving tray (or muffin tin) to sort the pom poms by color.
They will add all the red to one space of the serving tray and repeat it for each color, filling all spaces of the serving tray until the pom poms are sorted.
This activity uses only a few basic supplies and if you buy pom poms and a serving tray, you can repeat this activity as often as you like.
Kids can sort the pom poms by color and size and explore the textures of the pom poms in this quiet time activity.
This activity is educational, fun, cheap and gets your kids moving and away from screens.
Plus they help tidy the house!
