Toddler Ideas Tuesday: February 17, 2015

Welcome back to Toddler Idea Tuesdays! I hope you will join with me again in sharing the fun activities, crafts, and lessons that you are doing with your young children. 

Now that we are done with our countdown to Valentine's Day, I wanted to share an idea for St. Patrick's Day. Yes, I realize it is a month away. The thing is, I wanted to make sure to get this idea out there for anyone who was interested, because you would need to get started early next week as we are going to do.

I like to use this time of year to focus on colors with the children. I will focus on 2 colors a week, making our way through the colors of the rainbow in order. Here is this years plan:

We will have 2 days to focus on each color: Monday/Tuesday for one, then Thursday/Friday for the next one, and so forth, and so on. Wednesdays we have off because of co-op. Mondays and Thursdays the color will be introduced and they will have a muffin tin. We will do color collages and I will put together a color sensory bin. Sort of like this one I made several months ago:

For each color, the children will also add torn paper for a rainbow. Here's how we did it one year:

Next Monday the children will have a Red muffin tin meal for lunch, sort of like this one, but I do like to change them up from year to year.

 The older girls will get muffin tins, but any of the projects we do will be for the younger children. You can check out this post to see ideas for muffin tins of each color.

Now onto:

Toddler Idea Tuesday Features

On my last Toddler Idea Tuesday post, there were 3 wonderful posts linked up. I will be picking one randomly selected post to share, plus the top clicked-on post. 

This week's randomly selected post is:

Tara from Embark on the Journey shared her round up post called 20+ Busy Bags to Keep the Littles Occupied. I don't know about you, but I sure can use some ideas to keep my littlest one busy while working with the older children.

The following post tied with the above post for the most clicks:

Jill from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom shared her fun penguin activity: Tacky the Penguin Sensory Bin. This will be great when we get to P:Penguin again with My Father's World Kindergarten next year.

I would love to have you join in this week! What sort of activities do you do with your toddlers and preschoolers? Do you have some favorite activities you would like to share? I invite you to link up below. I will be pinning posts on my Toddler Ideas board and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up.
