7 Fun Ways to Celebrate Color Day with Kids
For weeks, our 6-year-old daughter had been asking for Color Day. A day where we all could get together and wear, eat and use everything of a specific color. This day was such a fun and memorable experience for our family, and I just know it will be one for yours as well.
Color day with the kids is always a blast! There are so many fun and creative ways to celebrate this special day. Here are just a few of our favorites:
1. Wear all one color from head to toe! This is a great way to get the kids involved and excited about color day. Plus, it makes for some really fun photos.
2. Eat foods of only one color. This can be a fun challenge for the kids (and adults!) to see how many different foods they can eat that are all one color. Find your favorite candies, vegetables and drinks in the colors that have been chosen.
3. Use only one color of crayon, paint, or marker for the day. This is a great way to get the kids thinking creatively and really using their imaginations. Have your little ones work together using their colors to make a picture together!
4. Play “I Spy” with colors. This classic game is always a hit, and it’s a great way to help younger children learn their colors. We took a drive out to visit family and the kids could only find their own colors. Trees, cars, signs and even clothes they saw people wearing.
5. Have a color scavenger hunt. This is a great way to get the kids moving and exploring their environment. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!
6. Make homemade pizzas with different colored toppings. This is a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy together. Plus, you get to eat your creations afterwards! If you're gluten intolerant like me make this project healthy by using cauliflower as the crust!
7. Go on a nature walk and collect items that are only one color. This is a great way to get some fresh air and explore nature with the kids. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!
When choosing snacks for our color day, we didn't want it to be just packaged items from the grocery. We made some yummy cupcakes with frosting and Sprinkles, and some delicious chocolate-dipped strawberries. We popped some popcorn and added a bit of food coloring to create a rainbow of snacks! The kids had so much fun decorating their treats and they loved eating them even more! It was a great way to spend some quality time with the little ones and they definitely got their sugar fix!
When our daughter first started talking about doing this activity, my husband and I were not thrilled. We had no idea how we were going to pull it off and had never heard of doing a 'color day' before. However, it ended up being an amazing time for everyone involved and we're planning on doing it more often to add some additional fun days to our regular schedule.
