Hello Yellow! We are back to colors for week 5 and what fun we had!
Our book of the week was Little Yellow Bee a cute lift a flap book we scored at our Barnes and Nobles trip during our St. Patrick’s Day week. I was a little worried about this book driving home our color for the week because the yellow bee was only referenced once in the story throughout the whole book. Boy was I wrong. While the words “yellow bee” are only spoken once while reading, Grace quickly found the picture of the yellow bee on each page of the book! So neat to ask her where the yellow bee was on each page and see her point to it!
I also had a yellow texture card made from items in my craft closet she could feel as well. Texture is a big thing with her. She loves to feel everything!
We danced all week to Pancake Manor’s Yellow YouTube video and StoryBot’s Yellow video as well.
We started with a yellow sensory bin made up of all things yellow from Grace’s toys and items around the house and she was able to play with her yellow bin all week long!
Our next activity for Yellow week was water painting a yellow bee to go along with her book of the week. I just drew a picture of a bee on yellow card stock placed it in a cookie sheet, set out a bowl (I just happened to have one that looked like a bee that came with an activity center) of water, handed her a sponge brush and off she went. We had previously done a water painting activity for our Red week so she knew what to do! The color of the yellow paper changes when water is added, but there isn’t much mess involved. Just a little drying off!
Our third activity for the week was Lemon stamping. Grace loves lemons so I knew this would be a hit and of course it was! I made edible finger paint by adding yellow food coloring to plain Greek yogurt. I cut a lemon in half, and placed both next to a large piece of white sided card board and the taste safe finger painting and lemon stamping began!
Look at that face! I think it’s safe to say she enjoyed this activity!
Our next activity for the week was Ziplock Painting a yellow sun. I drew a picture of a sun on a piece of card stock, placed it in a gallon sized Ziplock bag, added a few globs of yellow paint, sealed the bag and Grace began pressing and moving the paint around with her fingers and hands! Just remember to take the paper out of the Ziplock bag to dry!
Our final activity for the week was a yellow sensory bath! I just added Crayola Color Drops to her bath water and put all the yellow bath tub safe toys in and she was as happy as a yellow rubber ducky!
That was our yellow week! What a bright and cheerful week it was! 💛
EVERYDAY a little Grace 🌷
