I needed a theme – and quick! – I ended up losing a week somewhere! So between our recent Black & White preschool theme and looking back to our Red & Blue Tot Trays, I decided to take my own advice and do a color preschool theme.
Purple is a good one because it comes in SO many shades, as we fully learned this week. Enjoy our 11 Purple Color Preschool Trays!
- Purple Grid Drawing
- Harold & The Purple Crayon Tracing
- Sight Words
- Purple Coloring Page
- The Letter P
- Itsy Bitsy Purple Book
- More Harold Tracing
- Purple Paper crafts
- Preschool Phenotypes
- Shades of Purple Counting
- As it shows any time we do a roll or spin and graph activity, E sure loves drawing within grids and shapes! So, I set up an activity of that this time.
- The “grids” were a simple grid of squares made in Word, and this shades of purple Crayola-branded days of the week paper pad I got at Michaels who knows when. I also added some purple index cards.
- Naturally, we found all the purple drawing implements we could — colored pencils, Crayola Twistables crayons, triangular crayons, and more!
- Oh wow did we love this Harold and the Purple Crayon Tracing pack from the one and only Totschooling! Thank you!
- There are several cute shapes, lines, and pictures, just like Harold would do!
- Harold helped present our sight words this week — FOR, MY, and DOWN!
- Go check out a great collection of purple coloring pages!
- We also used this Purple Grapes coloring page from Twisty Noodle!
- E really liked the idea of the purple pie on this free Letter P worksheet from Education.com!
- How cute – and perfect for the theme! The Itsy Bitsy Purple Book is one of the many “itsy” books available at Kidzone!
- E did EVERY tracing page in the awesome Harold set – thanks again to Totschooling!
- Here we really see all of those different shades of purple! My random scraps of mostly purple papers, plus some purple tissue paper, are ready to turn into SOMETHING.
- And yes, it fills me with happiness that I had purple scissors and a purple glue stick to put on this tray!
- I’ve had this printed for a while and this was the perfect time to use it!
- We discovered genotypes and phenotypes with that graphic, plus, some simple artificial flowers.
- This activity unintentionally showed how many shades of purple there can be!
- Naturally we started out with the purple Lakeshore Learning counting math tray.
- Then we added the purple Minimotors Counters, plastic buttons, and counting bears!
This quick color theme was quite fun, and they need to be easy sometimes!
