Here are our Color Orange activities (done over 2 days).
Day 1: sweet potato fries on an orange plate, orange yogurt, orange peep
Day 2: carrots, orange juice, goldfish crackers, orange push pop
He wore 2 different orange shirts
and played basketball 🙂
Day 1: Painting Crafts- He painted different colors of orange on a piece of paper and made orange handprints.
I glued the painted artwork to orange construction paper and helped him trace cookie cutter animals that can sometimes be found orange in color.
The scanner made the orange look darker in the photos.
I turned one of his handprints into a tiger (I always make extra handprints in case of a mess up).
…. and made a toilet paper carrot.
I cut squares of construction paper (or tissue paper)
for him to glue on to the empty toilet paper roll. When they were all glued on, I had him paint the glue over everything to seal it. We used Mod Podge, but you could also use slightly watered-down, white school glue.
We also practiced words in Spanish:
orange-naranja or anaranjado
basketball- el baloncesto
carrot- la zanahoria
tiger- el tigre
fish- el pez
