Clothing

What green clothing do you and your child have? Do you have any shirts with shamrocks or clover on them? Does your child have some bright green socks? Pull them out and put them on today.

Toys

What kind of green toys can your child find? Do they have any green stuffed toys, like a frog or a dinosaur? Have your child dig into the bottom of their toy box for any little green toys or cars that might be hiding down there. Get out some green play dough and make some snakes and bushes. I’m not very artistic so that’s about all I can create with play dough. (Oh yes, I can make pancakes and pizza too!)

You can make your own color sorter with mini M&M containers. I made these and used them with my children and in my preschool classes. Collect several different color containers.

Color Sorting Buttons

Gather any loose buttons you have around the house. I was able to purchase a big tub of buttons at Wal-Mart several years ago, when they had a better craft section. You may still be able to find something like that at a craft and hobby store. Remove the label and glue a button that is the same color as the container to the lid. Let your child sort through the buttons and put them in the appropriate container. Just be sure to use this sorter with children that are old enough that they won’t be putting the buttons in their mouths.

Craft

Have fun learning about the color green with this Shimmery Shamrock craft.

Shimmery Shamrocks

These shimmery shamrocks are a great craft for Saint Patrick’s Day as well as a learning activity for the color green. It is also a good activity for discussing shapes because the shamrock is made up of a rectangle and four hearts. This craft works well for children as young as 2 years old as well as for older children. For younger children, you can cut out the shapes and simply let them spread glue and sprinkle glitter. Older children will be able to cut the shapes out themselves. You could also vary this craft by letting your child color or paint the craft sheet rather than using it as a template to cut the shapes from construction paper.

Materials Needed:
Shamrock craft sheet
Green construction paper
Glue
Foam applicator
Plate for glue
Green glitter

Materials Needed for Shamrock Craft

1) Print off the Shamrock craft sheet

Learning Activities for the Color Green: Shamrock Craft Sheet

2) Cut hearts and rectangle stem out of green construction paper.
3) Pour glue out onto a plate.
4) Use a sponge applicator to spread the glue on the heart shapes.
5) Sprinkle green glitter all over the heart shapes.
6) Glue the tips of the hearts together and let dry.
7) Glue stem to back of hearts.
8) Now you have a beautiful shimmery shamrock to decorate with.

Have fun learning about the color green with this adorable little caterpillar.

Caterpillar

Here is a green craft, just in case you are working on the color green and it’s not Saint Patrick’s Day. This would be a great springtime craft or when learning about caterpillars and butterflies. A big plus to this craft is that it is very easy. Even a very young child will be able to create this cute caterpillar.

Materials Needed for Green Caterpillar Craft

Materials Needed:

Green pompoms – two sizes (I used a 1 inch pom for the head and four .75 inch
poms for the body)
Wiggly eyes
Green pipe cleaner
Glue
Optional: magnet or spring-type wooden clothespin

1) Glue the small pompoms together.

Learning Activities for the Color Green: Gluing together Green Caterpillar

2) Cut the pipe cleaner in half then bend it into a U shape. Put glue on both sides of the bottom of the U.
3) Add glue to the larger pompom and press the head onto the caterpillar’s body securing the antennas between the head and the body. Let the caterpillar set for at least an hour to let the glue dry.
4) Then add wiggly eyes and there you have it, an adorable caterpillar.

Here I added the caterpillar to the Daffodil craft from Learning Activities for the Color Yellow:

Learning Activities for the Color Purple

 

So are you ready for some fun learning activities for the color purple? I have a couple of fun crafts. One is making a butterfly and the other one is making a picture of grapes using a toilet paper roll. My favorite grapes, when I was growing up, were the purple concord grapes that grew in our backyard. They were a little sour and really sweet at the same time. My mom made some of the greatest jelly out of them. You should try some concord grapes sometime. They are really delicious.

Now head to your closet and dresser and find some purple clothes to put on and start having some fun with the color purple.

Finger Play

Purple Violets
Found on Toddler Storytime

One purple violet in our garden grew.
(raise up one finger)
Up popped another, and that made two.
(hold up second finger)
Two purple violets were all that I could see;
But _____(insert child’s name)_____found another and that made three.
(hold up third finger)
Three purple violets if _____(insert child’s name)_____could find one more,
We’d give them to mother – we’d have four.
(hold up fourth finger)
Four purple violets – sure as you’re alive!
Why, here is another! And now there are five!
(hold up all five fingers)

Poem

This is a poem that I grew up with and absolutely loved. As I was searching the web (to make sure I quoted it correctly and find who the author is) I found this website: PoetryArchive I really like it because it included information about the date the poem was published and the publication that it was printed in.

The Purple Cow

I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one.

Story Time

Share this story with your little ones and discuss what kind of adventures the two of you could have with a purple crayon.

I See Purple by Trudy Micco

Ollie the Purple Elephant by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
Reading Level: Ages 4 and up
Be careful what you promise your children. The McLaughlin’s promised their children that if they ever found a purple elephant that they could have him (thinking they would never find one).

Find out what happens when the downstairs neighbor and the cat plot together to get rid of Ollie, the Purple Elephant.

Purple Little Bird by Greg Foley
Reading Level: Ages 3 and up

Purchase this book or borrow it from a library to find out who helps Purple Little Bird find the perfect place and where the perfect place is.

Sally and the Purple Socks by Lisze Bechtold
Reading Level: Ages 3 to 7
Sally gets some new purple socks in the mail. When she takes them out of the box, they are way too small. But there is a note in the box that says, “Once removed from the box, these socks will grow to the size ordered.” But Sally doesn’t remember if she told them what size she needed. Pick up this book to find out all of the amazing things you can do with a pair of socks that just won’t quit getting larger.

Music

I absolutely love using music when teaching children. Some children catch on to difficult subjects when put to music. Because of copyright laws I am not going to paste song files here but I will give you names of songs that I like to use. You can either find a CD with the song or listen to it on YouTube. Just turn up the music, get moving and have some fun.

Learning Activities for the Color Orange

I usually taught the color orange in the fall so we would do pumpkin or jack-o-lantern crafts. But it’s summer time as I am writing this post so I had to come up with some other more “summery” learning activities for the color orange. If it happens to be the fall when you are reading this post or you will be waiting to teach or review the color orange in the fall be sure to check out my post Pumpkins Are Orange and Other Learning Concepts for more ideas.

Toys

What kinds of orange toys can you find to play with? Like I said before, as I am writing this post it is early in the summer so look at some of your outside summer toys and see if they are orange or have orange on them. Do you have an orange ball or a beach ball with orange on it? How about an orange water gun? You could get a package of water balloons and only fill the orange ones then have a great orange water balloon fight!

Story Time

The Big Orange Splot by Daniel Manus Pinkwater
Reading Level: 4 yrs and up
“Mr. Plumbean lived on a street where all the houses were just the same.”…UNTIL?!?!…read this book to find out what happens to Mr. Plumbean’s house and how he “fixes” the problem. What would you do if this happened to your house? How would you fix the problem?

The Enormous Carrot by Vladimir Vagin
Reading Level: Ages 3 and up
Daisy and Floyd planted a beautiful garden. Everything grew exactly as they planned except for one enormous exception. Right in the middle of their garden grew an extra large carrot. Read this cute little story to find out how they were able to harvest this huge surprise.

Orange: Seeing Orange All Around Us (A+ Books) by Sarah L. Schuette
Reading Level: 5 yrs old and up
Here is another great color book from an author that has quickly become one of my favorites. I love her color themed books. Like her other color books, the primary theme of the book is written in rhyme. After you have read through the book you can go back and get more information about the orange item on each page. You can learn interesting facts about carrots, butterflies and tigers, as well as several other objects. There is also an informational section in the back with more opportunities for learning and fun activities for the color orange. I believe that it is given such a high reading level because of the extra information on each page. Personally, I would read this to a child that was under the age of 1 year old. I believe the rhythm of the rhyme and the bright pictures would keep them interested.

Music

Here is a song I enjoyed about the color orange. It even helps your child learn to spell. Because of copyright laws I won’t attach a link to it but you can do a search on the internet and either find the CD or a YouTube version.

Shake Rattle and Roll at Bongo Boy Music School

Shake Rattle and Roll at Bongo Boy Music School


Shake Rattle and Roll is not simply the title of a song from the early ‘50’s; it’s also a fun musical experience at Bongo Boy Music School. This particular class is geared for the little ones; birth to 36 months. There is another class for 3 to 8 year olds, called Jam as a Fam.

Today, I’m going to share with you about the fun we had at the Shake Rattle and Roll class. This will be our third trip to Bongo Boy Music School. Our first trip was in March of 2014, when we took our 32 month old, great-nephew. We were able to make a second trip when our grandson came to visit from Texas. He was 8 months old at the time. Both of them really enjoyed their time at Bongo Boy.

Shake Rattle and Roll at Bongo Boy Music School

Just recently, we were able to take our grandson back for a visit. He is almost 2 years old now. He had every bit as much fun as he did on his first trip.

Our grandson is still enjoying Shake Rattle and Roll at Bongo Boy Music School.

The class is set up to allow the children to experience music and rhythm through several different mediums. During the time we were there, we used the drums, some shakers, scarves, “quackers” (a percussion instrument that sounds like a duck’s quack) and our bodies. I say “we” because everyone is encouraged to join in. It’s very important for the adults to set the example. The little ones are always watching you.

Several energetic songs were used to encourage participation. One of my favorites is “The Freeze” by Greg and Steve. I used that song in my preschool classes when I was teaching.

Besides the fun with rhythm and music, there are some important secondary lessons that happen during Shake, Rattle and Roll. One of them is sharing. There is plenty of equipment for everyone but sometimes a little one likes to wander and play on another drum that someone is already at. The other lesson is cleaning up. At the end of the session all of the instruments need to be put up. Miss Colleen (our instructor) tells us what needs to be brought to her and the children take the items up and put them in the bin. On all of the occasions we have been there, the children have been very excited to help with the clean up. Miss Colleen makes everything fun!

The very last thing we did on this trip, to Bongo Boy Music School, was get up and move our bodies. As you can see in the following video, our grandson really enjoys moving his body.

As you can see, we really enjoyed Shake Rattle and Roll at Bongo Boy Music School. We will definitely be heading there again before my grandson and daughter head back to Texas.

Bongo Boy Music School offers several family friendly events:

Do you have a music school or drum circle that your family enjoys? We would love to hear about your experiences with music!

Zoolapalooza Review

Zoolapalooza Review

 

Zoolapalooza is a concert series at the Indianapolis Zoo. It takes place on four consecutive Fridays. On these evenings the zoo stays open a little later.

Last Friday night we decided to take our daughter and grandson and check it out. The concerts are free with admission and since we have a zoo pass, we didn’t have to pay a thing to get in. The concerts take place under a big tent so they happen rain or shine. Which was a good thing on this night because it looked like the sky would open and dump on us at any time. It never did but we were safe it it had.

We arrived early enough to check out a couple of the animals before we headed to the concert. We always have to stop and say hi to the seals. They were barking their greetings this particular evening.

We also stopped by to see the orangutans. Several of them were awake and moving around. One in particular seems to be smitten with my husband. It makes eyes at him every time we go….must be a female.

Enjoying the orangutans and Zoolapalooza.

The animals get to stay up a little later during Zoolapalooza. They don’t have to go to bed until 7:00. The rides also stay open until 7:00. As an extra bonus, members receive free access to a different ride each night. The night we were there the free ride was the carousel, which made me very happy. That’s my favorite ride. Someone else is beginning to enjoy the carousel as well.

Riding the carousel at Zoolapalooza.

We decided to enjoy dinner while we listened to the music. They offer a different specialty menu during each concert, as well as the regular zoo options. This night the theme was Americana. There was a full salad bar as well as Zoo-liders. My husband asked what Zoo-liders were. I told him they were sliders made from zebra…don’t panic! I made that up just to tease him. They were sliders but they were made of chicken, beef or BBQ pulled pork. You could choose two Zoo-liders. You also received freshly made potato chips and either potato salad and coleslaw for $8.99. You could include a soft drink for $9.99.

Dinner at Zoolapalooza.

My husband and I chose the Zoo-liders and my daughter chose the pizza, which is one of the regular food options at the zoo. My grandson chose to eat one of my Zoo-liders and some of his mom’s pizza. He really enjoyed dinner accompanied by music as you can see here:

Music was provided by Jayne Bond and the Pink Martinis. We had a lot of fun. There was quite a bit of dancing as well as singing along with the band. Besides the music, there were a couple of stations set up to help entertain the little ones. I was VERY thankful for that because my almost 2 year old grandson was constantly on the move. The two stations helped keep him in the vicinity of the music.

One of the stations was sponsored by Indiana Credit Union. They had a basket full of dress-up clothes. There were items suitable for boys and girls. There were some great props like guitars and microphones too, as well as a backdrop where you could take your own pictures.

Dress-up at Zoolapalooza.

The other station was sponsored by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. I loved their sign.

Instrument Petting Zoo.

My grandson really enjoyed “petting” the instruments.

Playing instruments at Zoolapalooza.

I was very thankful for the two stations because my grandson kept me running between the stations, the dance floor and the table we were at. We really enjoyed our evening and will definitely be returning.

I’m sorry to say that the Zoolapalooza concerts have concluded for this year but do not fret, more musical fun awaits. The Animals and All That Jazz concerts have started. They happen on Thursday evenings through August 6th. They run on the same concept as the Zoolapalooza concerts. There will be a different group performing each Thursday night, with specialty food offerings and a free ride for members.

Just like the Zoolapalooza concerts, Animals and All That Jazz concerts are free to Zoo members and included with regular admission. Visitors can save $2 at the gate by bringing an empty Dean’s milk carton to the Zoo to be recycled. Advance tickets are also available at IndianapolisZoo.com or concert goers can find a coupon on the Zoo’s Facebook page that’s good for $4 off admission at the gate after 4pm on the night of the event.

Here is a list of the remaining concerts for this year. Pick a date (or two), pack up the family and plan for an evening of fun, food and music. I just might see you there.

July 16: West Central Quartet

From classic to contemporary, this high-energy foursome showcases an eclectic mix of music that reaches across multiple jazz genres. Their unique approach to entertaining is sure to get crowds up on their feet.
Menu: “Taste of Summer” with beer can chicken, salad bar and apple dumpling a la mode.
Featured ride: Carousel

July 23: Mina and the Wondrous Flying Machine

Featuring an adventurous mélange of styles, this group offers a fresh approach to jazz music. A multi-talented singer-songwriter leads their piano-driven sound, which is highlighted on their new album — with the Zoo-appropriate name — Tigers.
Menu: “Pan Asian” with pan fried noodle bar, salad bar and root beer float.
Free member ride: Kōmbo Roller Coaster presented by Outback Steakhouse

July 30: Appalatin

Bridging the music traditions of Latin and American folk, this band’s foot-stomping, hip-swinging sounds have been in the spotlight on festival stages around the Midwest.
Menu: “Night of Havana” with Cubano sandwich, salad bar and build-your-own ice cream sundae.
Free member ride: White River Junction Train

Aug. 6: Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra

What better way to close out the series than with a rare performance by this incredible 17-piece orchestra. This veteran ensemble bring decades of experience to the stage along with a song list of familiar tunes from many big-name jazz musicians.
Menu: “Mediterranean Night” with kabobs, salad bar and ice cream sandwich.
Free member ride: Carousel

Have you been to Zoolapalooza or Animals and All That Jazz? Please share your experience with us? If you haven’t been in the Indianapolis area for one of these events, do you have something like this where you live?
