The Color Brown

 

 

This week’s storytime theme was the color brown.

The children enjoyed the book Brown: Seeing Brown All Around Us by Michael Dahl.  The children looked at each other’s eyes and talked about their eye colors as we read the page featuring brown eyes. Here’s a link to exploring eye colors in families.

The book featured several delicious brown foods.  A great science activity to pair with the color brown would be to create sensory containers with a variety of brown spices and flavors such as cinnamon and cloves, or coffee and cocoa. Here is a link to instructions and other sensory ideas.

This book also included a fun recipe for peanut butter clay.
