Monday was the big candy, costume day and I figured we may have some overtired and oversugared kids. So....today is Blue Day. We really had a great time! Cynthia was Bunny Blue and had the kids boo hoo hoo with her on each page.
Opening: Who Wore Their Hair Today?
Baby Bear brings in our letter of the day..... B.
Book: What's the Matter Bunny Blue? by Nicola Smee
Fingerplay: Two Little Bluebirds
Mother Goose: Little Boy Blue
I like to use the big Mother Goose poster sets by Kim Faurot.
Book: The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle
Love this book!
Action Song: Baby Beluga
Book: It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw
Always a hit in storytime. We use the big book version.

Blue Squish bags that Cynthia and I made ahead of time. We used blue hair gel and duct taped it into freezer ziplock bags. Kids can fingerpaint and squeeze their color.
