Tyler has been obsessed (to say the least) with rainbows, ever since St. Patrick’s Day. I added rainbows into his activities this week.
We began by reading the book The Runaway Bunny.
Next we set up a fishing game for him he used a real carrot with a homemade fishing pole (thanks Daddy). He fished for a bunny just like the momma did in the book.
He caught one.
Then we had carrots for a snack.
Day 2: We read the book, did the shape puzzle, played the bunny pattern game all again. He also climbed the
stairs mountain looking for the baby bunny.
While reading the book we discussed the pictures. We colored a color picture and drew a black and white one.
We planted some flowers in a flower pot for the garden page. No, they are not crocus, but one was yellow. Close enough, right?
This day his fun activity was ice boats, I put some water in a cupcake tin, put tinfoil over it, stuck in toothpicks and froze it. The next day I cut out paper triangles and stuck them on as sails, he loved this. I just let him play at the kitchen sink on a stool. I showed him how to blow the boats around without touching them.
Day 5: We read the book, did the shape puzzle, played the animal match game and colored a rainbow page.
We did a tightrope walk this day as well. My camera battery died so no picture of it. I just laid a piece of string out and we practiced walking in a straight line.
Another thing was we did a science experiment making milk rainbows. All the kids loved this one. In fact we have done it twice. We learned this from watching Amazing Science Volume 1. (Review coming soon)
I got my ideas for this unit from:
