Color Recognition, Creativity
Help your child make a collage using only materials of a certain color. for a “blue collage,” set out blue construction paper, blue pompoms, blue fabric scraps, blue magazine pictures, etc. Help her glue these items to a piece of paper or cardboard.
She can also draw on her collage with blue crayons or markers. This is a great time to talk about different shades of blue — dark blue, light blue,navy blue, royal blue, etc.
Caution: Monitor your child closely during this activity. Always use non-toxic materials.
