Green and Blue and Purple

It's COLOR theme time in Kindergarten! 

Our entire kindergarten team planned 9 days of COLOR fun.  We all dress up in a certain color each day and encourage the children to do the same.  We all show our excitement and spirit for kindergarten together.

See what fun with had with GREEN and BLUE and PURPLE!

I put out all the green art materials I could find at the art center.  This included paper, paint, glitter, feathers, stickers and pom poms.

We shared in a reading and singing of this poem--

(to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

G-R-E-E-N, G-R-E-E-N
I know how
to spell green,
Caterpillars are green.
Grasshoppers are too.
I know how
to spell green,

Next came BLUE day! 

Art supplies included paint, a stamp pad, stars, pom poms, paper, glitter, craft sticks, feathers and stickers!

I remember learning this BLUE song last year for the first time.  It took me so long to pick up on the tune!  Once you get it though, you just can't stop singing it!

(to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)

B-L-U-E spells blue
B-L-U-E spells blue
Hi-ho, did you know?
B-L-U-E spells blue
The big sky is blue.
The ocean is, too!
Hi-ho, did you know?
B-L-U-E spells blue

 Now, onto PURPLE day!

I had less PURPLE art materials to put out today--but the children were just as creative!  They had paper, paint, pom poms, a stamp pad and purple googly eyes to work with.

And the PURPLE poem we shared in went something like this--

(to the tune of This Old Man)

P-U-R  P-L-E
spells the color purple, you see!
Like the grapes on a vine
or some plums on a tree.
P-U-R  P-L-E

On Monday, one of our awesome parent volunteers, Mrs. Claire, came in during Center time.  She worked with a groups of children on color mixing.  She had a crowd of children waiting in line to play!  This Color Mixing Game is one of the Learning Centers from Lakeshore. 

Abby is mixing red and blue!

The children had to put the two color cards together to find out what they make.  

 Austin is mixing red and yellow!

Another center the children worked at during Center time was a color sort on the Smart Board.  This game was a hit!  Here is the link to the site. 

What a colorful couple of weeks we enjoyed together!


  1. That looks like so much fun, I wish we didn't have uniforms. I received a Versitile Blogger Award and wanted to pass it on to you. Thanks for being an inspiration.

  2. I loved that game with mixing colors. Could you give me the name of that game? I would like to buy it for my children.
    I need some ideas about farm animals theme. Could you recommend some books to me?
