THE COLOR WHITE

WHITE TEXTURE COLLAGE
This is a fun project for your children to do as a group. Set out a large piece of white poster board for a base. Then invite the children to create a texture collage by gluing on an assortment of white materials, such as cotton balls, facial tissue, string, lace, felt scraps, plastic-foam peanuts, navy beans, plastic bag scraps, and salt.
 
WHITE NECKLACES
From white tissue paper or other paper, cut out small shapes, such as circles or squares. Punch a hole in the middle of each shape. Then let your children string the shapes on pieces of white yarn to make necklaces. (Necklace activities require adult supervision.)

WHITE MEMORY GAME

On a tray, place several white items, such as a piece of chalk, a cotton ball, an envelope, a facial tissue, and a sugar cube. Allow your children to examine the items for a minute or two. Then cover the tray with a white cloth and have the children try to name the items from memory. Or secretly remove one item and ask the children to tell you which one is missing.
 
LAUNDRY TIME
Collect clean items of both white and colored clothing. Mix up the items and place them in a box. Invite your children to "sort the laundry" by placing all the white clothes in one basket and all the colored clothes in another one.

MARY'S LITTLE LAMB PUPPETS
Give your children lamb shapes cut from heavy white paper to decorate with glued-on cotton. Help them add faces to their lambs with markers and tape on craft sticks for handles. Have the children use their puppets while reciting or singing "Mary Had a Little Lamb."

WHAT'S WHITE?
For each of your children, tape a white paper circle to the floor. Let the children dance around while you name different colored items. Whenever they hear the name of something white, have them stop dancing and stand on a white circle. Continue as long as you wish.
