I have not been very good at planning ahead our workboxes each week to meet the holidays. Since yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day (and I don’t think either child was dressed in green!) I figured it was time to belatedly do something somewhat related. Today we’re about Rainbows!
My main activity today was a Cut-and-Paste Rainbow using paint chip squares and images in all colors of the rainbow. I had a pile of paint chip squares, so I used those to make an accordion book, held together simply with tape. Then, my girl enjoyed cutting out the items and gluing them on the correct page.
Here are the other activities for her rainbow busy box.
- Discovery Kids It’s a Match Level 1 Game
- Coloring books and a rainbow of crayons
- Colored puff ball number tubes from 1-5
I’ve done the puff ball numbers before. Today was the first time she truly loved playing with it!
Get the Cut-and-Paste Rainbow items at my shop for no charge.
Every Wednesday, come here to link up your workbox/busy bag/busy box posts. If you cannot post it on Wednesday, don’t worry. The linky is open all month. So link up your workbox posts and let us know what you do to teach your kids and keep them busy. Please visit my co-hosts at Chestnut Grove Academy and Tots and Me as well! What is in your workbox this week?
