Celebrate the color pink in your classroom! Here are a few ideas to get you started. And remember, pink doesn’t have to be just for girls!
- Finger Paint with red and white paints so the children can experiment and make different shades of pink in their picture.
- Make a collage of pink things. Search through magazines for pictures. You can also have the children draw their favorite pink items.
- Study pink animals such as pigs, snakes, flamingos, starfish, insects and more! Here is a great article highlighting some of these beautiful critters – http://webecoist.momtastic.com/2011/08/23/blushing-hides-10-amazing-pink-animals/!
- Create a pink scavenger hunt. Have the children search for things that are pink throughout your classroom.
- Serve a pink-themed snack. Some ideas are pink lemonade, raspberry sherbet, strawberry ice cream, or even have the children mix their own cup of pink pudding (vanilla pudding with a few drops of red food coloring).
- Plant a garden using a variety of pink flowers.
- Have a dance party and add pink scarves and balloons for extra fun.
- Add pink rice to your sensory table.
- Read Pinkalicious, by Victoria and Elizabeth Kahn or one of these other pink-themed books
