Color My World Series #5 ~ Blue. Introducing the Color Blue into Daily Activities.

Introducing the Color Blue into Daily Activities

What do you envision when you think of the color blue? The sky? The ocean? Juicy blueberries? This month, we’ll be taking a look at the color blue.

The color blue is such a fun color. There aren’t as many blue fruits & vegetables as the other colors, but blueberries are SO good.  If it’s warm out, maybe you can go berry picking! Or if the weather is colder, have an indoor picnic.
