Spring Color Walk
Enjoy the beautiful spring weather and delight your child by going on a spring color walk together!
color cards or chart (optional)
What to do:
- Invite your child to get ready to go on a fun "look for spring colors walk" with you.
- Talk about the colors that you might see. Include pastels; pink, tan, and gray as well as the usual red, white, blue, yellow, orange, green, purple, black and brown. Make a color chart with crayons if you wish.
- Ask your child to find objects on your walk that are specific colors.
- Challenge him to connect his "find" to the springtime. For example: the white puppy running through the garden, gray clouds bringing spring showers, and so on.
- When you get back home, try to remember what you saw of each color and how it related to spring.
Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.
- Find me something that is pink?
- What is your favorite color?
- Do you think you could draw a picture showing some of the things we saw on our walk?
While you are having fun together, this activity helps your child develop observational skills, thinking skills, and large muscle skills.
