29

The Rainbow Fish Snack Time Recipe ­ Rainbow Parfaits Give each child a clear plastic glass. Allow each child to make a rainbow parfait by layering yogurt, cereal and fruit. You will need: Flavoured yogurt: Have one or two different flavours of yogurt. Cereal: any kind of cereal will be tasty, but it may be better to try one that you know the children will like, such as cheerios or rice krispies. Try to stay away from sugary cereals with artificial flavours and colors. Fruit: any kind of fruit or berry will work: bananas, canned pineapple, pears, peaches or fruit salad. 1) Sit the children around the table. Put bowls with the fruit, yogurt and cereal in the middle. 2) Allow the children to put 2 spoonfuls of yogurt in their cups, one at a time. Discuss the different choices they make and link with color and flavour. 3) When everyone has yogurt, spoon some fruit into the glasses, followed by cereal. You may want to add a second layer of all 3 ingredients.

30

The Rainbow Fish Craft Time ­ Hand Print Rainbow You will need: Construction paper in a rainbow of colours Scissors Stapler 1) Trace handprints on construction paper and cut them out. 2) Staple the handprints to a bulletin board in a rainbow shape. Classroom Rainbow This craft works well with a small group of children (7 or so). You will need: paints ready in the following colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo (navy blue) & violet large piece of poster paper or Bristol board Clean, empty Styrofoam meat trays or pie plates Paintbrushes 1) Pour out some paint in a pie plate or a paper plate or clean Styrofoam meat tray. 2) Set out a large piece of poster paper or Bristol board. 3) Bring the children to the paint station, one at a time.

31

The Rainbow Fish 4) Using a large paint brush, paint the first child's hand with red. Have the child stamp her handprint on the paper ­ you should get a few "stamps" each time. Make the stamps in an arc shape; the red one should be quite wide and high. 5) Change to a different child and the orange paint. Repeat the procedure, painting the handprints under the red. 6) Repeat with each color in order, painting under the previous one. If you want to do a classroom rainbow with many children, simply allow them to only do a few stamps. More Crafts There are a few ways to make a small personalized rainbow. You could cut the children's handprints out of construction paper. Trace their hands onto the rainbow colors. Trace their hand once onto each color. Cut out their hands and simply line them up in a rainbow shape like this:

From www.dltk-kids.com

You could also make a small rainbow using paint, similar to the classroom rainbow above.

32

The Rainbow Fish You could also make a neat rainbow fish print by painting children's hands with a variety of colors and then stamping onto the paper. Make a circle for an eye, and some circles for breathing bubbles.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar The Very Hungry Caterpillar Felt Board or Story Cards You can use these Story Cards in two different ways: · You can color the story cards and then stick a little bit of sandpaper on the back of them and use them as a felt/flannel board story. Give one story card to each child. When you read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, ask the children to come up and place their story cards on the felt board at the appropriate time. · You can color the story cards and glue them to popsicle sticks. Give them out to the children. Instruct the children to raise up their story card when their part of the story is read. For a large group of children, use the larger story cards and give one of each item to a child. Eg: one strawberry to one child, another strawberry to another child. At the end are some sequencing cards. You can photocopy these and allow the children to cut them out and use for a sequencing activity. They can paste their cards onto construction paper in the order of the story. You can use the sequencing cards for a small group of children with the popsicle activity or the flannel board. These cards are grouped so one child would have all the strawberries.
