I like to incorporate educational activities and learning opportunities into our days, and planning them out and having them on hand makes it so much easier to do.
My kids adore the book, "The Day The Crayons Quit" and I thought that a day with activities centered around it would be perfect and engaging.
We had special donuts with sprinkles the same colors as the crayons in the book. The napkins and cups I picked up at WalMart and the plates we already had. You had me at donuts! I put brown paper and crayons out for them to color with and, as expected, Griffin was all over them right away.
We read the story as we ate. And after breakfast the boys watched Mr. Rogers show how crayons are made on YouTube.
Rogers so much and I was having total s flashbacks: Rogers videos since then and have learned about making construction paper and fortune cookies. Rogers video, I asked the boys to construct their own crayon factory out of Duplos.
Since they had just seen a real factory in action they had lots of great ideas. We took white crayons and they drew designs on white cardstock with them.
Then we used watercolors to paint the paper. As they painted, the designs they drew showed up After lunch and errands we got out all of our broken crayons, stripped them down and broke them into pieces. The boys worked intently on this for about 45 minutes.
We filled up a mini muffin tin Regardless, the boys still got a kick out of seeing all the melted colors and we learned a valuable lesson for next time: The night before, I drew out these crayons on poster board and cut them out again - prep is key!
I wrote out a list of colors and let Luke practice his writing by writing the color on each crayon. After he wrote the names, he drew and colored things that represented each color on the wrappers. My original plan was for him and Mason to cut pictures out of old magazines, but Mason was napping and Luke really wanted to draw, so we ran with it.
We had a great time talking about each color, referencing the book and figuring out things he could draw for each color. After nap time it was dinner - and during dinner I asked the boys this series of "Who Am I" questions to see how much of the book they remembered.
You use me to color dinosaurs and trees and frogs. Can you tell him I am the color of the sum? Give me a break. I need a rest. And the freaky thing is that they were almost word for word quotes from the book.
They sorted their colors and then shaded in the number of boxes that corresponded with the number of crayons.
I thought I was gong to have to help Mason with this a lot, but he really really liked doing this activity. I have plans to do another one with sorting and counting Hot Wheels cars or skittles or blocks or something because he loved this so much.
We ended the night by reading the book one more time and talking about our favorite activity from the day. Luke loved melting the crayons even though they failed as ending up as crayons to use.
The day was so much fun and it was actually really simple to put together. I have plans for a few more of these this summer and hope to continue the Family Book Club tradition into the fall.
I would LOVE book recommendations! My kids love all kinds of books, but ones with humor are always their favorites.Find the latest business news on Wall Street, jobs and the economy, the housing market, personal finance and money investments and much more on ABC News.
