I'm getting better, two day in a row. Though I just realized I'm a day behind. Good job Joy.
The theme for today is colors kids!
The Daughter is started to learn her colors but I found that she would guess all the time. I wanted to try a little experiment on her to see if she would get it a little better. I decided to use food as a way to teach her the different colors.
We first visited a local grocery store (Whole Foods) to show her how each type of food has a color. We went to the produce and grain area then I asked her to point out the food with a particular color. One of our stops was at a make-your-own granola buffet. The colors ranged from browns to green. When I quizzed her, she was able to pick out about 50 percent of the colors.

Then I tried to make stuff different dishes where there was a dominant color. She got a little better at recognizing the colors.
Paula Deens Butter Cake with Pumpkin - I will post my take on it
A shrimp salad to represent pink
Soup Dumpling for white - I promise to pose the recipe
Fried chicken and waffles for brown - at least my take on the disk
Mussels paella for Black (this is my cheater recipe)
Baked egg omelet for Yellow
By this point, she was able to pick the correlating fruit to the color. I think I may try this with The Son when he is older. Now I just have to work on numbers and letters. She only knows the number 6 and the letter X. I don't know why, strange child.
