Sign language for rainbow
Book: Monsters Love Colors by Mike Austin
Rhyme: Color Rhyme by Jean Warren
If your clothes have any red
Put your finger on your head
If your clothes have any blue
Put your finger on your shoe.
If your clothes have any green
Wave your hand so you’ll be seen
If your clothes have any yellow,
Smile like a happy fellow
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Clap your hands with all your might.

Craft: Match colored objects like pom poms, feathers, tissue paper squares and yarn to colored circles on paper. Either glue them on, or take the objects home in a bag to play again. (Note: Most parents opted to glue the items onto the page, but one parent reported to me later that her older child loved playing with this, and that they had added more colorful items from home.)
