White Rabbit's Color Book by Alan Baker
Color Mini Books
After reading the book we made our own color books. These were the first mini books we have made in a long time and the 1st where the Lil Divas did all the writing & illustrations on their own. They were so proud and it was so simple - I cut up 2 pieces of white paper into 4 equal parts for each book and stapled them.
We made a cover page and then dedicated 1 page of the book to each color of the rainbow. The Lil Divas thought of something to illustrate for each color.
Here are our books:
2nd page Orange with a drawing of an orange - the other lil Diva made a peach & 3rd page Yellow with a drawing of a banana (hard to see) the other Lil Diva made the sun
4th page Green with drawing of grass and 5th page Blue with drawing of sky. They both made the same thing for the last few pages.
I forgot to take a picture of the last page for purple but they both drew grapes.
Color Word Match
I made a color word matching game that I am using with the Lil Divas and thought I'd share. I did not get pictures but it's a basic card with the color and then a matching card with the color word. It is to help them recognize the color words.
I made all the basic colors but we have just been working on the colors of the rainbow this week.
I also made cards with the color word printed on the color card for younger children just starting out. It would be a great way to introduce what the color words look like and they could still match based on recognizing the letters on each card.

Play-Doh Rainbow Fun
This was great motor skills exercise too because it involved lots of rolling of the play-doh
Of course we had to add white clouds too
These were simple and fun to do & then we enjoyed some free play with the play-doh
