Snowflake Colors



I found these snowflakes at childcareland and thought they would be great to work on colors and fine motor.  Adeline knows most of her colors but her fine motor is not so great, so I thought this would be fun.  I don't have the exact link to the snowflakes but here is the link to child cares web site  http://www.childcareland.com/.



I just used buttons to match the colors but many others things could be used as well.

Awhile ago I print up Adeline's color flashcards from Brillkids and made them into a book.  I wanted her to be able to look at her colors as much as she wanted.  I would read these to her often also.  This book has now become a bit dull because she knows most of her color so I thought I would revive it by making it into a matching color words interactive book.

I need to add the Velcro yet.  I want her to be able to stick on each word under the matching word.  Thought this would be a handy quiet book to take to church and other places.
