Good morning readers! Today I’m sharing some of what the Teeny Tot has been up to lately!

As you can see by her workboxes, she’s been having fun learning all about the Letter R and rainbows this week! Letter R Memory Verse: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Exodus 20:8 Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and put up the letter R on our Alphabet Tree! You can download my small alphabet letters here.     Scavenger Hunt: Fill the box with things that start with R! Some ideas: raisins, red, rat, rabbit.

Then we mixed them together to make the secondary colors. After that they were free to dot paint their rainbows using the eraser end of their pencils. Here were our results: Hope you have fun!

Rainbow Crayons

Wanna keep a couple kids busy for about 30 minutes? Give ‘em a stack of old broken crayons and have them peel and break them into tiny pieces so you can make some Rainbow Crayons for your Prek Letter R for Rainbow curriculum! Supplies: used, broken crayons no one likes to use anymore! metal muffin pan Instructions: Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fill muffin tin with chunks of peeled broken crayons (For our rainbow theme we mixed lots of colors together! They were really fun to draw with) Put muffin pan in oven for about 8-10 minutes or until crayons are melted. Once crayons are cooled, pop them out of your muffin pan for some fun rainbow coloring! Super easy and the kids love ‘em. And look how nicely they stack for storage! (ps…they came out of my muffin tin very easily…I only note this because I was slightly concerned about getting my pan cleaned…) … [Read more...]
