Color Mats

I made these color mats by laminating sheets of construction paper. I wrote the name of the color on one side before I laminated them. During play time we spread them out on the floor and started running around the playroom getting toys to sort on to them. The kids loved it and it was great for practicing colors. All of the kids told me that we needed a pink and grey one:)

I have a lot more activities in mind for these but this one alone was great fun!

  • Hold them up when you sing color songs
  • Lay them out and shout colors to jump to
  • Hide them around the playroom and hunt for them
  • Put them in rainbow order
  • Use them to practice writing the colors

Lacing Extension

So no What's Out Wednesday this week! I have to get my act together;) My Tuesday nights are starting to get packed with church activities and then it's also the only night that me and my husband can get a date:) I'm just going to try and prepare my post earlier so that it will be ready on Wednesdays. In the mean time the kids thought this activity made lacing cards a little more interesting. I put out pony beads so that they could string them as they laced the card.
