Cotton candy, fat pink pigs,

Quick Starts for any Color Day

1) Make Vanilla pudding and add food coloring of the color you want.
2) Make Jell-O in the color you want and even add some fruit of that color.
3) Kool Aid Art - Sprinkle Kool Aid powder of the desired color on a large piece of white paper. Use Spray bottles to spray the KoolAid with water. It make some very interesting artwork that smells good, too!!!!!
4) Fingerpaint with the color you are "studying."
5) Fill the water table and add food coloring of the desired color and toys of the desired color.
6) Make some colored water using foodcoloring and freeze it in ice trays the day or night before. Then, Put them on trays or in the water table and watch them melt to make colored water. If you use different colored ice cubes, the colors will mix to make new colors.

These are some things I do in my preschool special needs classroom!!!!
