Cc - Cottonball Cloud

This is a fine motor skills project that we have worked on several times. Grace knew just what to do. We pull the cotton balls apart into, at least, two, smaller pieces and then dip them in the puddle of Mod Podge.

Activities

Color Blending

We read Little Blue and Little Yellow and Mouse Paint  and talked about how colors can mix together to make new colors.

Jen at Mama.Papa.Bubba had made this perfect little light box for her daughter, so, naturally, I knew it would be great for Grace.

She also had the tutorial how to make these color gel baggies to go along with Little Blue and Little Yellow. Thanks, Jen!!

Color Wheel Matching

We did several things with colors this week, this tray included.

I printed the Color Wheel HERE.

The box was filled up with some very random objects.

Grace enjoyed thinking and figuring out which objects went where.

Circus

I happened to come across this wooden circus set through a consignment sale a couple of months ago and couldn’t wait until it was our Cc week to bring it out for Grace. It is wonderful!

Each piece is wooden, so very durable, and they are all able to stand on their own.

Actually, many of them stack nicely on top of each other – acrobatics all around.
