This craft combines the stickiness of contact paper with the gentle beauty of tissue paper to make for a fun and beautiful creation! It was done by the students at Touchstone School and was great fun! The, “Intermediate,” level class had been discussing the weather and did this craft to create a rainbow!
Colors Theme for Preschool
We have just finished our celebration of color in our classroom. We focused lately on mixing primary colors to create new colors. We also explored many color sorting activities. I love how our different activities build the fine motor skills of the students and also enlarge their repertoire of process art techniques.
This set of printable flashcards is a great tool for children aged 3-5 who are just starting to learn how to recognize colors. There are 8 flashcards for each color that feature common items as well as animals often associated with that color.
Our celebration of colors continues for weeks as we devote one day per color. (We are a three days a week program, therefore it takes us a little longer.)
This is a fun fine motor activity idea that ties-in perfectly with Halloween! It was created by Sunshine and Rainbows Learning Center in Joliet, Illinois and involves matching colorful clothespins with the correct dot on a paper-spider’s body so that it can have all eight legs properly in place!
