Decorations & Activities:
- I just used the most impactful, colorful toys I had....large cardboard blocks. You could also use legos, dolls, or a collection of toys that were primary colors.
- I printed coloring sheets for the kids of crayola boxes of crayons as well as pages to help them learn their colors.
- We were also going to watch Blue's Clue's "Color's, Color's Everywhere" DVD.
- I bought large crayons and put them in clear cups.
- And I used red serving trays that I already had.
- I used red placemats that I already had to give a good base.
- I purchased flavored/colored water for kids. They were $.50 for four so I got them, otherwise you can just make different fruit punches and kool-aid.
- I purchased containers of colored jell-o. Again, they were on sale, otherwise you can just make your own.
- Fruit is always colorful as well as any veggies. I did dye the ranch dressing blue just to add a punch of color.
- I diluted some food coloring and washed tortilla wraps in the colors and make meat and cheese pinwheels. I mixed whipped cream cheese with a Ranch dressing packet and used that instead of mayo...it helps the pinwheels keep their shape.
- Lastly, I made rice crispie treats out of Fruity Pebbles to provide a lot of color.
The kids were all going to come dressed in their favorite colors. Even though my kids are home-bound and sick, we will still enjoy all of this and wear our favorite colors today....it's COLOR DAY!!!!
