Hooray for Purple Cake Day!

Today we celebrated Purple Cake Day. At Morning Meeting, we talked about how there are some children who are unable to go to school, we are raising money so that they can go to school, and that's why we are having Purple Cake Day! We sang I Have Favorite Color and Purple Is it's Name-O to the tune of B-I-N-G-O. We read Harold and the Purple Crayon. We also danced to purple shape Hokey Poky. Each child was given a purple circle, square, and triangle. When their shape was called they had to Put Their Shape In and Put Their Shape Out and so on.

The children decorated crowns, collaged with purple materials, played with purple snow in the sensory table, and explored purple sand with their fingers. During Music, Evan sang and the children danced around to Purple People Eater.

Inspired by Harold and the Purple Crayon, we spread out a very BIG piece of white paper along the floor and gave each child a purple crayon to draw with. Then we made purple play dough and painted ice with purple tempera paint using our fingers. During lunch Erica, Harry's mom, read Harold and the Purple Crayon to us again and Today Is Monday by Eric Carle for Literacy Week.

Today truly was purplicious!
