You can pick a different color for everyday of the week. It’s fun to follow the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Then end the week with a rainbow day.
Both my big kids had colors week in Kindergarten when they got to dress in a specific color each day of the week. It was SO much fun and we had already done it for Theme Weeks, so really this is just a preview!
Sunday – Red Day – clothes, color hunt drive, Finger Painting, red foods (esp. fruit)
Monday – Orange Day – clothes, color hunt, Richard Scarry Colors book, play with playdoh, oranges
Tuesday – Yellow Day – clothes, color hunt, Make a sunshine craft with construction paper, eat yellow food
Wednesday – Green Day – clothes, color hunt, color sorting, Red Light/Green Light, salad and veggies
Thursday – Blue Day – clothes, color hunt, play with a color and shape sorter, eat blueberries
Friday – Purple Day – clothes, color hunt, My Many Colored Days, food (fruits), make a craft or special treat with Skittles
Saturday – Rainbow – clothes, make a rainbow using water color paints or construction paper, eat the rainbow (Skittles, too!)
Other Fun Ideas:
- Get books about colors from the library. There are stickers on the bindings of books about colors at the Douglas County Library – ask a librarian for help finding those specific books with stickers.
- Get movies about colors from the library (Bear and the Big Blue House, Blue’s Clues, and Elmo’s World all have good episodes about colors.)
- Eat foods that match the color of the day – even do a whole meal in that color.
- Talk about all the colors included in color combination days (blue + yellow = green).
- Talk about how each color makes your child feel and which ones he or she likes best!
- You can expand Colors Week to two weeks with pink, purple, brown, white, black, gray, and tie dye day :)!
Enjoy God’s creativity in His creations with colors week! Colors Week and Shapes Weeks is fun to do near each other.
