Letter G Activities for Preschoolers

  • Start a garden – growing things in containers counts!

    • Put a little blue paint and little yellow paint in a Ziplock bag and let your child squish the two together.
    • Marble Painting – Lay a piece of white paper in a shallow box or container. Give your child two marbles. Let them put one in blue paint and one in yellow paint then drop them on the paper. As they tilt the container back and forth the marbles will roll around. (keep redipping in the paint as needed) When they’re done have them look at the spots where the two paints crossed over each other to see that they made green.
