Finding Food with Flutterby Butterfly

This week we explore a new story called┬áFlutterby Butterfly, the story of a newly hatched butterfly who just can’t figure out how to eat! Does he chomp, does he slurp, or does he use his mouth like a straw and suck up his food?

First the kids gathered flowers for the butterfly…

Then we made some juice that we could drink through straws, just like the butterfly.

Of course, when a butterfly drinks certain colors, it can affect the colors of his wings right?

Happy eating everyone!

Buttons for Pete

This week at Kids Nook we told another groovy tale of Pete the Cat, our favorite cool cat. After learning about his faaaavorite shirt, and it’s four groovy buttons that keep getting away, we decided to help Pete find his buttons and never lose them again!

Once we gave Pete back his buttons, we thought it would be nice for us to make a him a Big Colorful Button! We used our paintbrushes…

Links to the Rainbow!

To finish off our Very Hungry Caterpillar week, we decided to share some great kids activities┬áinspired by Eric Carle’s great use of color! ┬áCheck out the links below for fun games!

1) Rainbow Toy Hunt- Coffee Cups and Crayons

It’s a simple idea, but look at how cool it is!

2) Pompom Color Matching

 

This game would be a good one to help kids figure out different shades of colors. Afterall, not all reds are the same ­čÖé

3) “Magic Milk” and Mixing Colors┬áat Lemon Lime Adventures

An oldie but a goodie! Kids love seeing how the dishsoap, milk, and colors work together (and so do I!)

4) Colored Flower Experiment at Growing a Jeweled Rose

 

Another classic experiment where you can see what cool colors you can make with colored water and white daisies.

5) Homemade Rainbow Frozen Yogurt Snacks at Coffee Cups and Crayons

 

Ready for a snack? Try making your own rainbow yogurt freeze pops!
