Let your little one take in the wonders of the outdoors, finding different colors in nature. This handheld palette guides kids on their way as they identify colors and develop language skills by sharing their discoveries with you, out loud.
Nature’s Palette
What you need:
  • Pencil
  • Old file folder
  • Scissors
  • Paint-sample strips
  • Glue stick
  • Construction paper
What to do:

1. Use a pencil to help your child draw a painter’s palette on the file folder. Then cut out the palette.

2. Cut out squares from the paint-sample strips.       

3. Glue the color squares to the palette.

4. Go on a nature walk with the palette. Look for things in nature that match the colors on your palette.

5. After your nature walk, cut the remaining paint-sample strips into shapes.

6. Glue the shapes to the construction paper to make a nature collage.
