A Little Colour Magic

Last week we read the book "Planting a Rainbow" by Lois Ehlert.
I chose it to have some fun with colours.
Prior to story time I dyed sunflower seeds to match the colours in the rainbow.
 After reading the story,
I showed the children coloured sticks.
We put them in our garden box in order as they appear in a rainbow.
The children were then given 6 seeds, one of each colour.
They planted them, matching the seed colour to the stick.
Another book we read, during our second storytime, is called
"Plant the Tiny Seed" by Christie Matheson.
It's a fun interactive story.
It also helped inspire the idea of magic.
We watered the seeds and left them over the weekend.
 Monday morning magic!
At story time we had fun comparing the coloured sticks to the flowers
that magically grew over the weekend.
