Fruit Print Color Wheel

We have been talking about the five senses in kinder and first grade. I thought fruit prints would be a fun way to incorporate the color wheel with the five senses

We used marshmallows for grapes and the bottom of a marker for blueberries. I will say that there were a few less marshmallows after each kinder class (even after our special talk)….some of them just needed to incorporate ALL FIVE sesnses….

I added some scents to the paint, it smelled so good!!

As an extension, first grade gave the fruits their own five senses using pictures from magazines. It was hilarious to see what they came up with. I will add that next time I will not do the magazine part. I think it would be beneficial to cut out about ten of each noses, mouths, and eyes, photocopy them and let them cut from those. Wiggly eyes are good too and Michaels sells some really cool ones around Halloween. Otherwise you have 40 magazines with beautiful images of people sans facial features…kinda creepy!

    1. Aly LOL I must have heard annoying orange like 100 times in an hour when we started this! I actually watched that show last week bc my daughter wanted to watch it. Let's just say I do not condone, endorse, or suggest the show to anyone! The kids do love it though, and if you make it relevant to them,it does increase their excitement for learning!

  5. You are so creative. It looks fun! Did you just have the children take the paper with them and rotate around the tables to stamp the different fruit?
