I was looking for a snack last night and I found these year old tootsie rolls - yes I ate two and I am still alive LOL - then it came to me - this container would be great for the coloured game chips I bought at a garage sale for 10 cents. I also had some sticky tac paper I had bought at a garage sale for 50 cents.
I sorted all the chips I had and took out the coloured ones.
Then I put them together as a colour activity!
I called up each friend to find a specific colour and put it into our container.
They had a great time and did very well identifying the colours!
Later in the afternoon some of the children played with this independently, taking turns and identifying the colours!
