Colors Day 2- Yellow

Hello, Yellow by Christianne C. Jones
The Happy Little Yellow Box by David A. Carter

sun, oh what fun.
Now we all can play.
I will wear my yellow suit
And swim out in the bay.

Yellow sun, in the sky
Shinning down on me.
I will play out in the sun,
Then rest beneath a tree.
--Jean Warren

  1. Open file folder and twice fold (fold one end toward the middle crease then fold the other end toward the middle crease) in the sides so you can open the folder in the middle with the two doors on each side. 
  2. Glue 1 piece of white construction paper in the middle.
  3. Cut the 2 yellow pieces of construction paper in half long-wise.
  4. Glue one half on each side of the open lapbook and on each side of the closed lapbook.
  5. Set up 6 stations one at each seat around a kitchen table: coloring (white printing paper with a 3"x3" sunshine drawn in the corner, yellow crayons), painting (white construction paper, paint brush, yellow paint), markers (white printing paper with a 3"x3" bumble bee drawn in the corner, yellow markers), stickers (white printing paper, yellow sticker), colored pencils (white printing paper with a 3"x3" cheese drawn in the corner, yellow colored pencils), play dough (yellow play dough, play dough tools).
  6. Let your child start with painting (so it will dry on time) and work his way around the table completing each activity ending with play dough (so you will have time to cut while he plays). Child should fill as much of each paper as possible with yellow (the picture and the blank space). 
     Colored Pencil
  7. While child is playing with play dough; mom will cut a 3.5"x3.5" square around each colored picture (sunshine, bumble bee, and cheese). Save the rest of the paper for the balloons.
  8. Cut a piece of the white construction paper in half long-wise. Fold it in a tri-fold accordion style. Glue the 3 yellow pictures on the 3 sections (all pictures should be one the same side of the opened paper). Glue the back of the bottom third of the paper to the bottom right of the lapbook.
  9. Mom will trace and cut a 4"x5" balloon shape with the cardstock pattern out of the crayon paper, markers paper, stickers paper, and colored pencil paper (be sure to save the scraps). Then cut an 8"x10" balloon shape with the cardstock pattern out of the painted paper (be sure to save the scraps). 
  10. Tie the 3 foot balloon ribbon to the painted balloon and hang it on the wall with the ribbon in the clowns hand. (you can write "yellow" on the balloon before you hang it if you would like)
  11. Tie the 4" balloon ribbons to each of the crayon, markers, sticker, and colored pencil balloons. Glue them in the center of the lapbook being sure to glue the top part of each ribbon too. You can tie all the ribbons together or leave them hanging. 
  12. Child will cut the scraps that were saved into 2" pieces (the shape doesn't matter).
  13. Cut 1 piece of white printing paper in half so you have an 8"x4" piece. Fold it long-wise so it measure 4"x4".
  14. Child will glue his paper scraps on the front of the folded paper and on both sides of the inside to form an yellow collage. Let it dry.
  15. While the collage drys take the other half of the white construction paper that was cut in half long-wise earlier. Cut it down to 8"x4". Twice fold in the sides like the lapbook is folded (so you have kind of doors on the front).
  16. Open it up and write "YELLOW" as big as you can with glue bottle. Let your child add yellow glitter or yellow sequence to the letters. Let it dry.
  17. While glitter is drying go back to the yellow collage and open it up. Let the child glue in the black "YELLOW" letters. Let it dry. 
  18. While paper collage is drying work on the sensory collage.
  19. Warm up the hot glue gun. Take the yellow felt piece. Have the child show you were he want's the yarn, ribbon, pom-poms, and 5 of the buttons. Mom will hot glue them on. 
  20. Then glue the felt sensory collage to the top right of the lapbook.
  21. Go back to the glitter book and close both sides of the front cover. With the hot glue gun glue the extra yellow button on the middle of the front being sure to just put glue on one of the flaps. Glue the glitter book to the top left of the lapbook.
  22. Go back to the yellow paper collage and glue it to the bottom left of the lapbook.
