Curly Cutie’s object color palettes

color palettes

We  were sitting at the table going over a lesson for school when inspiration hit.  On the table, my daughter (age 6) pointed out a green piece of fabric, green toy car and a green crayon.  She looked at me and said, “Mom, look at this color palette.  I have an idea.  We can make several of these using different colors.  This would help baby boy (age 2) learn his colors.”  What a sweet idea.  I told her it was fabulous and we should work on it during quiet time.  That was a pretty big deal for me, because I do enjoy my down time but saw this as an opportunity to encourage her creativity.  I suggested we take photos of her creations (to the best of our ability of course).  We scoured the house for items that fit into the color categories she chose.  She would arrange the items for one color while I took pics of another.  We went back and forth in that manner until each color had been photographed.  I’m learning so much about how she processes information and what she values about her work process.  I did make suggestions about object placement for the photos.  We had lots of fun.  Now we just have to figure out what to do with the pictures.

  1. Oh how fun! Those are great photos! You could make a book out of them. Several websites like shutterfly offer that and then she would be able to read it to her baby brother.

    1. Ooh, that’s a great idea! Thanks. He got to see the pics for the first time yesterday. It was so fun because he was familiar with the objects already and started pointing them out. It would be neat to turn them into a book.

  2. Love this. Chocolate Drop is so smart and thoughtful.
    You and your male counterpart need to meet soon. Sound so much like ’em in this post… That is all…

Go ahead and leave a drop!
