Unknowingly, I picked out the perfect book at the library yesterday for National Crayola Crayon Day… Monsters Love Colors!
A book all about coloring.
To go along with the story I set out empty baby food jars filled with water and rice.
Then we added food coloring to make new colors… like orange.
After our color experiment we prepped for lunch. We have a pad of paper called “Doodles at Breakfast” with step-by-step drawing instructions to make your own placemat. Jeff’s been too young to draw anything yet but I came across a monster and thought it would be a good time to try for Crayola Crayon Day.
Following lunch, Jeff helped me make Creamy Swedish Rice Pudding (since we had milk to use up and I had put rice in the jars… as a way to tie it in).
Mmm…our afternoon snack.
Jeff wasn’t a fan but he REALLY wanted to eat the rice from the food colored water. Ick! Jack thought it was yummy though…
In addition to Crayola Crayon Day it was also National Tater Day… so for dinner we had Rosemary Potato Pizza. Yum!
And of course the boys’ ended their day with a green food colored bath!
