Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni

Yesterday was such a busy day for us (we closed on a house we're buying!) that I decided to take a break from letter "I" activities. Bekah still wanted to do something fun, so I turned to something that wouldn't take up too much time. It actually ended up being one of Bekah's favorite activities ever. We had gotten the book Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni from the library and decided to do this activity with along with it.

We read the book together. It's such a cute book about two best friends, little blue and little yellow. When they hug one day something amazing happens....they turn green! Bekah loved it!

We then took a blob of blue paint and a blob of yellow (little blue and little yellow) in a sealed baggie.

Have the friends hug together.

Look! It's turning green.

Bekah thought it was just amazing!
