Little Blue and Little Yellow book with Venn Diagram freebie

This week at Coop, the Storytime From A to Z letter was "Y" and the book was "Little Blue and Little Yellow".

My go-to art project every time we do colors because it…

The children love the simple text, and cut out pages that allow big green monster to appear - and disappear, one feature at a time. I saw this idea in Mailbox Magazine around 2001, and have done it with my kiddos every year since. We start with a heavy piece of white paper, folded in half. I add a dab of paint on the crease, and the kiddos close the fold and rub rub rub to spread the…
