Preschool Curriculum Ideas: Colour Blue

Preschool Curriculum Ideas: Colour Blue

This week Colour of the Week is: Blue. To enforce this colour we will be doing blue themed crafts, playing with blue play dough, and singing blue nursery rhymes.

Blue Craft

I made a picture of a fish (thankfully young children do not mind terrible art skills!). I gave The Knight Boy some blue paint, a blue milk bottle top, and a toilet roll tube. He used the bottle top and toilet roll tube to paint the fish.

Blue Rhymes

Lavander’s Blue Dilly Dilly

Lavender’s blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender’s green
When you are king, dilly dilly,
I shall be queen

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
‘Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so

Call up your friends, dilly, dilly
Set them to work
Some to the plough, dilly dilly,
Some to the fork

Some to the hay, dilly dilly,
Some to thresh corn
Whilst you and I, dilly dilly,
Keep ourselves warm

Lavender’s blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender’s green
When you are king, dilly dilly,
I shall be queen

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
‘Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so.

Little Boy Blue

Little boy blue, come blow your horn,
The sheep’s in the meadow, the cows in the corn
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack, fast asleep.

Blue Treasure Hunt

Go round the house and find as many things as possible that are blue.
