Taste The Rainbow

Skittles...Taste The Rainbow
It's great for kids to learn with more than one sense.
So continuing with yesterdays theme,
We learned about color with our sense of sight and taste.

I like to keep things simple,
So while I was drawing a Rainbow for Miss Sassy to use,
She was drawing her own Rainbow
I did this right after Lunch.
I quickly cleaned off the table,
Grabbed some markers, papers and Skittles and we got learning.

I gave her my drawing of the Rainbow
And she sorted the Skittles by color.
The only stipulation: No eating the Skittles until they were all sorted.
I kept baby H in his highchair and gave him books to read.

It was fun and tasty!
It's great for kids brains to sort any item.
And colors are right up my 3 year olds alley now.


  1. What a fun activity, now I'm hungry for skittles! I think I'll try this with Cami and her cousin Ari this week...Ari's staying with us for 8 days! They'd have fun with the colors, although I don't know they'd be disciplined enough to hold off eating until sorted. :)

  2. What a cute idea! I bet little miss sassy had the best time! Ps her rainbow was adorable

  3. What a fun way to enjoy your Skittles!! :)
