Green Color Arts and Crafts

Fun With Green
Get some yellow construction paper and cut out shapes in blue tissue paper and gluing them on so they make….Green!

Green Finger Paint
1 medium Ziploc bag
Shaving cream (white)
Food coloring
Squirt white shaving cream inside the Ziploc bag, add a few drops of food coloring, and close the bag, making sure that all the air is out. This gives your child the opportunity to explore mixing colors (blue and yellow makes green, etc.) — and there’s no mess to clean up afterwards! Or clip a corner & finger paint with it.

Magic Frog
Run off a cute frog black line on bright yellow construction paper, then have the kids put dots on the frog with “blue” bingo markers. It is magic to them to see the dots turn out “green” on the frog! They then cut the frogs out and put them in their color booklets they are making on the GREEN page.

“Oscar the Grouch”
Using 35 mm film canisters, have the children cut a little square of newspaper (approx. 3×3″) put a drop of glue in the bottom of the canister and then put the newspaper in so some sticks out of the top.

Glue one green pompon on the newspaper, and glue two tiny squiggle eyes on the pompon (they will need help with the eyes.) it looks just like Oscar the Grouch in his garbage can.

You can get all the film canisters that you need for free at a film/camera store.

Green Color Songs, Poems and Finger Plays

Color Song
(Tune: If you’re Happy and You Know It)
If there’s green on your shoes stand up quick
If there’s green on your shoes stand up quick
If there’s green on your shoes,
If there’s green on your shoes,
If there’s green on your shoes stand up quick!

(Of course you can change the article of clothing and the action you do to extend the song or to include others that have green somewhere else.)

Color Hop Song
(tune of Old MacDonald)
I see something that is green
Do you see it too?
I see something that is green.
HOP there if you do.
With a hop, hop here
And a hop, hop there. Hurry up! Hop it up!
Hop as fast as you dare.
I see something that is green.
Do you see it too?

(Have children tell you what they found)

Peter Piper
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
