With Saint Patrick’s Day right around the corner, Reagan and I decided to get into the spirt of things by making a delicious rainbow!
Color identification and sorting skills are definitely utilized and strengthened throughout this activity.
Place each color of fruit loop in front of your child. Have your child identify each color and place each different colored fruit loop into its own cup.
Place a handful of fruit loops in front of your child and have them sort the loops into corresponding cups.
Draw an arch with the glue. Allow your child to choose the color that they would like to use first. Model how to place the fruit loops onto the glue. After the first arch color is done, continue underneath until all colors are used.
Using the glue, swirl a cloud of glue at the bottom of each side of your child’s rainbow. Model how to stick the white cotton ball to the glue.
The simplest activities can be used to strengthen such important skills!
