We have been following along with Play Create Explore as they focus on a different color each week. If you want to take a look back at previous weeks that we have participated in, they are Red, Green, Black and Orange. This week we have been Exploring the Color Blue. Here are some activities we did to explore MY favorite color at our house:
Exploring the Color Blue: Under the Sea Stick Puppets
We started by using some foam stickers to make these little stick puppets. I only tore off the paper backing where the stick would go so that they didn’t stick to everything else. Then I cut out a slot on the top of a shoe box and was going to drape a blue cello sheet across the front but it was too small so I cut a piece out of the back. We made the fish swim in the shoe box sea for a little while but not as long as I thought. Ladybug decided she wanted to make them swim on the light box so we brought them over. Then I thought, why don’t we actually make them swim in real water, so we did that for a while and that was her favorite part. All of a sudden the fish puppets were being given names and interacting as friends. Ta-Da, fun times!
