Several months ago, we did a color of the week in our Tot School with my daughter. One of the things we tied in with our colors was the Bible lesson that “God made everything.” I chose an item for each color and we would do a little craft activity with that item, talking about both the color and how God made that animal, plant, etc. You can read more about what we did in my original post here.
As we finished each page, I would laminate it and add it to our book. She still plays with this book (and coordinating felt pieces I made) often, even months later. At the time, all the pages were done by hand (because I was coming up with them on the fly week by week!), but I have since made a printable version of the book to share with you!
You can use these as simply as coloring pages, or you can find other ways for your child to decorate the pages. Here are some ideas we used throughout the book:
- Do-A-Dot Paints
- Finger Paints
- Painting with cotton balls
- Gluing tissue paper or construction paper onto the page
You and your tot will enjoy creating this book and reading through it together over and over again!
