Introducing the Color Green into Daily Activities

Introducing the Color Green into Daily Activities

Green is my MOST favorite color !! I think of new beginnings, amazing holidays (Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter), green grass, and pure happiness when I think of green. This month, we’ll be taking a look at the color green.

There are so many awesome things we can do to teach our kids about the color green. There are some delicious fruits and vegetables that are green. Asparagus and grapes are two of my favorites.  Choose your child’s favorites and have a picnic! Let your child choose the green items off of your grocery list and put them in the cart. Provide an assortment of green vegetables cut in half (cucumbers, green peppers, green beans, celery, etc.) and allow your child to dip vegetables in green paint and make prints.
