I have a fun activity and snack for you today to help your little ones learn and have fun at the same time. My 2 boys have been having so much fun participating in the Hogwarts Summer Fun Challenge over at Puddle Wonderful Learning. One of their challenges was to go on a rainbow color hunt. They loved it! Want to send your kiddos on a rainbow color scavenger hunt? Here’s the rules, okay so there’s not really any set rules. We just went out side and I would say the color and then my boys would run around looking until they found the color. Some colors were easy, like green, but indigo? Not so easy! I’m not sure if we even really found indigo. I even went so far as to do a google image search for the color indigo and was surprised to see the huge differences in colors all claiming to be indigo, so we guessed. Don’t judge if we’re way off 😉 To add to the fun we took a picture of the item we found for each color and turned it into a photo collage for them to look at and use to practice their colors.
