Welcome to this week’s “What We Did This Weekend.” In this segment, I showcase a project or recipe that YOU have inspired me to do! Let’s see what you’ve gotten me into this week…
My little one’s life is all about colors right now. In her words, “I love all the colors, Mommy!”. So this Preschool Color Scavenger Hunt from Crayon Freckles was a perfect idea for her!
We gathered brown paper bags and then cut and glued different color squares on the front. We then spread the bags out on the table. My daughter went around the house collecting different items that she then had to match up and place in the correct color bag.
It’s a pretty self-explanatory concept, but for more pictures you can visit the Crayon Freckles page here.
What I Liked About this Project:
- There are actually several learning opportunities here. If you have a little one old enough to use safety scissors, they can help cut the squares to work on their cutting and coordination skills.
- What kid doesn’t like using glue?
- The bags are collapsible for easy storage and future fun.
- This is an inexpensive project that utilizes items that you already have in your home.
- Kids love filling the bags up, but what’s even better than that? Dumping them out, of course!
- Reinforce the “clean-up” concept after the game is over the return objects where they belong.
