Today we went on a Rainbow Scavenger Hunt!
We found a container for each color and Ellie looked all around the house for any little items of that color that would fit in her container. I challenged her to find ten items in each color but in the end she found more than that!
We started with Red:
Since we were going in Rainbow order (Ellie LOVES rainbows!) orange was next.
Followed by Blue
(She wanted to do Indigo, too, but I was skeptical that we could find ten items - so we skipped it)
We had a blast searching for all the items!
I don't know about you but thanks to The Cat in the Hat on PBS, I can't go through the colors of the rainbow without singing his annoying song in my head:
"Red, orange, yellow, green followed by blue, indigo and violet that's the rainbow song for you!"
I plan on keeping the items in the containers for awhile to use as rainbow treasure baskets for Maddie. She liked looking at all the items together!
We also played with rainbow foam and ate Lucky Charms with Leprechaun Milk for breakfast - but I'll have to add those pictures later :-)
