Rainbows are such a wonderful way to review and explore color and color mixing. As part of our exploration of rainbows, we invited the children to put together these simple felt rainbow puzzles.
We often sit down as a large group to explore different kinds of concepts through a hands-on activity. For the rainbow felt puzzles, each child was given their own small DIY felt board and felt puzzle set.
Miss Abby used the large group time to promote discussion with the children about size, shape, color, and rainbows.
Even though the children worked side-by-side on their rainbow puzzles, they still were given lots of room to put their puzzles together in their own way.
I always enjoy sitting down together as a large group to do a process such as this. It gives us time together to promote discussion, build community, and learn from each other.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the felt we are using and that I love the most is a stiff felt. It cuts easily and holds it shape much better than soft (flimsy) felt.
