The sun is shining this week, (I wrote this post when this was true) a rare occurrence for an English summer so we're taking took advantage by finding lots of outdoor activities.
A colour treasure hunt.
Lady F is learning more colour based words. She is a little obsessed with yellow so on a sunny Monday morning we took a bag and stroll around the village to find as many instances of yellow as possible.
We found lots of yellow shapes on all sorts of objects. It really is amazing what you spot when you're looking.
It was a good opportunity to discuss shapes and the purpose of each item. A good vocabulary booster for tots developing their speech too.!
We also found the colour yellow in nature and even collected some to take home. This was Lady F's favourite part. 'Der you go' she'd say as she popped them into her container.
When we got home we lay our spoils out on the table. We talked (I talked) about the different shades of yellow and even lined the flowers and leaves up according to size. We then topped off our yellow morning with a delicious yellow (mango) smoothie. Yum
