O is for Orange


The boys and I have been working through a baby sensory a-z and we got to O and decided to do oranges. Then I thought we could start a new series of colour themed days. So this post is about our orange day activities.

What did we have?
Orange toys in an orange basket
Orange food 
Orange craft supplies
Orange coloured and scented cloud dough
Orange foam window letters and objects

What did we do?
We tasted the orange food and talked about the taste and texture 
We played with orange cloud dough
We sorted orange toys
We completed a tally chart of the orange objects
We painted/printed with oranges
We made a collage with orange craft supplies
We did some kitchen science and made orange potions
Looked at an orange sensory bottle
Played I spy
Made music
