The first book that I picked was Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. It was an ok book. I don't see it making it to Arin's favorite books lists. Nonetheless, we read the book and then did a couple of activities related to it. I have a small flower paper punch, so last night, I cut out several flowers in the colors of the rainbow. Then, I printed a blank rainbow coloring page. I gave Arin a gluestick and directed her as to which colors went on which line. At first, she did it by herself, but then she wanted me to play with her. So we took turns putting the flowers on the rainbow. She was very sweet and she sat on my lap while we played together.
Next, I printed this coloring sheet. Then, I gave Arin a bowl of Fruit Loops. I put globs of glue on the flowers and Arin put Fruit Loops all over them. This project was tough to keep her focused because she was more interest in eating the cereal than making a picture with it!
