As I mentioned yesterday, this week we are having fun with rainbows and colors. Visit this post for a list of books to go along with a Rainbow and Color theme. Here are some of the activities we have done.
Make a cloud rainbow using pom poms and strips of paper (more details here from Live Learn Love)
Rainbow Letter R (more details here from No Time for Flashcards).
Sort pony beads into rainbow colors then string on pipe cleaners. Stick the chenille stems in an egg carton to make a rainbow.
Zach had a great time stringing the beads. We used a flower foam base I had on hand as a stand.
Lily made her rainbow, then turned it into a garden complete with flowers, a sun, and clouds.
