So now that we're on a bit of a roll here,
this is something else we made:
Emily was very proud to tell her dad when he got home,
"I colored the plastic circles!"
The girls played traffic lights all morning, taking turns
to drive their cardboard car and change the signals. Had
to explain to Emily (Jenna didn't care) that real traffic lights
are timed so that people needn't stand out in the cold/heat
to press little switches to direct traffic.
At supper time, Jenna dutifully recited, "Red means stop.
Green means go. Um, what does lellow (yellow) mean, mum?"
A fun way to learn colors, I think.
