This week, the kids worked on a collage rainbow...
I love these kinds of community projects!
Every year I order lots of garden catalogs in the mail and they are just chock full of colorful pictures of flowers, vegetables, and fruits. I find these catalogs to be just perfect for this project. I had the kids either cut out or rip small samples of colors from the pages and glue them to the corresponding arch in the rainbow. All of the kids (2-5 year olds) were engaged and having fun. Even with all these little hands contributing to the project I was surprised to find that the project was pretty time-consuming — 2 days in a row of working on it and it still isn't complete! Anyway, it was a great project for reinforcing color labeling and working on fine motor skills. Plus it tied in the theme of St. Paddy's day and rainbows. I even participated, and this mama/teacher enjoyed it as well. :)
