Nothing Rhymes with Orange

I’m finally getting caught up here!  Orange was before brown…we had some fun songs, finger-painted some pumpkins, and used garden veggies to paint fun pictures.

The Pumpkins in my garden are

orange, orange, orange

orange, orange, orange

orange, orange, orange

The pumpkins in my garden are

orange, orange, orange

O-R-A-N-G-E

(My families are really good about dressing their kids in the color of the week, whether intentional or not.  We made up new verses with things like the shirt on Aedan is orange, orange, orange…)

We made our orange paint with red+yellow – the kids thought that was pretty magical.  We used celery, peppers, zucchini, apples, potatoes, corn, onions and acorn caps to paint.  It was a blast!

The textures were evident and the kids liked that they didn’t have to get too messy!

We put the paint in foam trays and had the best luck when brushing paint on the corn for rolling instead of rolling the ear in the tray.
