Our preschoolers love playing with color. Lots of colors!

No Crayons: Coloring for Kids

We have painted our pancakes and pretty much anything that is washable in our house.  We have drawn obsessively with crayons, yet, there are some ways we have never interacted with color.  I love discovering new activities for our kids.  Thanks to all of you who linked up to It’s Playtime last week – I checked our stats some of you are getting more than a hundred people coming to check out your posts through our party!  Glad to see that you have enjoyed browsing the entries. Color Activities for kids

More than Coloring and Print:

Have the kids coloring in an outline with dried bits of playdough instead of crayons.  Paint over it with glitter paint to seal it and add pizzaz (via Putti Prapancha).

Experiment coloring for kids by testing absorption with sponges, cotton balls, maybe even Q-tips,  while painting on felt (via Share and Remember)

Have your child Name the colors while they work on fine motor skills by rolling and wrapping paper to createpaper beads (via Preschool Play)

Pour Koolaid onto a page and watch it become paint as icecubes melt – love this food coloring art (via Hands on: We grow)

Use all the Colors in the Rainbow to create an unusual and colorful sensory tub with spaghetti and alphabets (via Imagination Tree)

Learn about fluid density and weights by exploring with some science bottles (via Messy with Miss Jessi)
