The Color Treasure Hunt

Owen and I are still learning about colors (remember our color mixing activity?). This time it’s colors we can find outside. Let’s go on a treasure hunt, a color treasure hunt.

All we need is an empty egg carton with construction paper circles glued to the bottom of each section.

The idea is to find something outside that is the same color as the circles and then match them up. The treasure hunt is over when you’ve found something for each of the 12 colors.

Brown acorn, red flowers, green ivy, yellow leaf, blue piece of trash… hey, I never said I was a great gardner… which reminds me I once planted bulbs with a crowbar because I didn’t have a shovel, true story!

We did pretty well for our first treasure hunt. We found everything except something pink and purple. (Must be some kind of macho aversion!)
