GREEN SALTThis was an activity I whipped up on the spur of the moment one sunny day and both children played with/in it all day long. I put some salt in a zip top bag, added a piece of green sidewalk chalk and hammered it into powder. This made the salt lovely shade of mint green (it's a little difficult to tell in the photos, but it really is green). I put it in a pan, added two green scoops, and took it outside to the patio.
Everyone enjoyed scooping...
Once all the salt made it out of the pan and onto the patio, Little Lady actually rolled around in it at one point. She was a faint shade of green for much of the day, but oh, did she have fun!
GREEN MUFFIN TIN SORT
We can never get enough of our muffin tins. We did a green sort with them one day that went well for a bit...
then we had the ubiquitous dumping...
... and the finger puppet. This girl loves finger puppets.
GREEN SEEK AND FINDWe had fun doing this with our red color pail and it got better this time. I hid some green objects from our green color pail around the yard and had Little Lady "find" them (really, just retrieve them since they weren't hidden particularly well).
Big brother got excited to help.
Before I knew it, she had climbed into the wagon and he was pulling her around the yard to each green item. He would park her right near the item so she could grab it and put it in the wagon. They both had loads of fun with this and we did a couple rounds of our green seek and find.
GREEN STICKY COLLAGE
Here come the muffin tins again! This time I used a mini muffin tin to separate small green objects for Little Lady to pick up and add to a piece of clear contact paper to make a sticky collage. Having the items separated in the muffin cups made it much easier for her little fingers to pick up.
I taped the contact paper to the window right at her level so she could stick away.
She did a few objects, then took a dance break. She learned a new move - spinning - and had to practice.
Then more collage-making!
Our finished collage! Once all the items were stuck on it, I folded the top part of the contact paper over to seal everything in. I thought she had arranged the items in a shape I could maybe cut around to form a "G" for "green" but I failed. Mini Me wanted to know why there was a letter "B" on the window. "B" for "brilliant" activity, I guess!
We love green!
