I created a new, fun activity for Monte to do at my moms house! I got the idea off of Pinterest (where else?!?) and the inspiration actually came from here. I wanted to do a box full of everything that started with the letter “A”, but as I was going through the playroom, it began to be easier for me to collect items that were red. So, there is a mix of both in the box!
I had a random picture box, that I had not used yet. I used this to collect and store my items.
I started with these three books I found! My Little Red Book, Clifford’s Bedtime, and A. They work perfect for this activity!
I then cut out a HUGE letter “A” in red foam, I had leftover from the Foam Shape Activity.
(Excuse the odd shaped “A”)
I then found a bunch of large RED legos and cars!
I also cut out a large heart and placed a sticky note on it reading “color the heart RED!”
We need some RED snacks so I added red strawberries AND applesauce (I added red dye to it)
This is a great and inexpensive activity. You can use items you already have at home! It’s a great way for your kiddos to learn their colors using items they already see and play with everyday!
What fun activity do you do with your kiddo to learn colors?
