SPRING SIZE GAMES

SORTING SHAMROCKS
Print out 4 or 5 copies of the two smaller shamrock patterns.
Have your children color or paint them green.
Then cut out the shamrocks.
Mix up the shamrocks and let your child sort them into piles by size.
 

RAINBOW PUZZLE
You can make a color rainbow puzzle for your child by using a 9 x 12 white piece of poster board.
Lay the cardboard sideways and draw a large arc using the bottom edge of the paper as the bottom of the arc.
With a pencil, mark off 12 inches on the bottom and draw pencil arcs connecting the first and last inch mark & so on making 6 (1 inch) arcs.
Cut out the six arcs and color the largest one red, the next largest orange, then yellow, green, blue and purple for the last arc.
Throw away the inner arc and the other left-over papers.
Mix up the arcs and give them to your child.
Have him find the smallest arc (the purple one) and then place the other arcs on top, creating a rainbow of color arcs.
