And the green grass grows all around, all around......

Do you know this popular children's song? It's a fun lyric that repeats the color 'green' over and over.

Kids love to recognize and name colors, all the colors of the rainbow.  We can provide fun color recognition activities that easily support this developing skill, activities for any day, any season.

We draw attention to red for Valentine's Day, yellow for the sun in summer, brown for a spider on a branch.

St. Patrick's Day activities highlight the color green. There are lots of different ways to include all things green in your everyday play with preschoolers.

St. Pat's Day crafts also support learning to recognize and name the color green.

This is a fun activity, coloring and cutting out shamrocks to make a green garden picture.
