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.
This is such a simple activity, but my daughter loved that she had “made a rainbow” all by herself.
To begin with, 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. Maybe I should clarify. she wanted to cut them out herself but needed lots of help!
This was a perfect small motor skills practice activity. I did not put boxes around the items on the page and so she did not have pressure to cut “on the line.” It was simply a chance to try her hand at cutting.
And then she had a beautiful rainbow at the end of it!
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!
