Color Clip artThis week we talked about colors!  I love this theme because there are so many great books out there that you can use.

I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! By: Karen Beaumont (This one was tough because the kids didn’t get the rhyming aspect, so prob better for older kids)

Check out my Color tag on my Shelfari page for more good books that I didn’t have time to read!


I cannot remember whose blog I got the idea for this craft from!  So sorry!  I will update as soon as I remember.  I passed out colored strips of paper to each child and scissors.  I figured I could let them cut the strips into pieces, more fun that way 🙂  Then we glued them on to make a rainbow!  The cotton balls add a nice cloud effect too.  And I added the line on the bottom so they could write what their favorite color is.  Here is the sheet I used:
