Since we've been talking a lot about colors in our house, I thought we would do one more rainbow activity. Making necklaces out of fruit loops was a great way to sort colors and work on fine motor skills!
We started by sorting the fruit loops by putting each one into their matching color bowl. On a side note, we really love these plastic bowls from IKEA. We have the matching plates and utensils as well.
We talked about the colors of the Rainbow and named the colors in order out loud together. Then I asked him if he could make a Rainbow necklace. He actually did this with very little guidance!
But stringing onto a piece of string was a little difficult. So we stopped at bracelet length. I thought it would be easier if he used a piper cleaner instead of string. This proved to be much better. And this time he opted for an all green necklace :o)
Now the best part! Time to eat! Even little brother got to have a little of my necklace.
