These crafts are designed to help children remember colors by associating them with familiar things. Kathy Ross offers at least one wonderfully clever craft for every color in the rainbow, as well as for black, white, brown, pink (a childhood favorite!), and gray. For example, yellow is represented by a Yellow Caterpillar Cuff Pin and a Yellow Pages Corn Magnet. Green comes in the form of a Green Frog Zipper Pull and a Green Monster Gift Bag. The book ends with some beautiful multicolor projects, among them All Colors Alien Pencil Tops and Chatty Color Family Puppets! Kathy Ross has drawn on her thirty years experience as a preschool teacher and curriculum developer to create crafts that preschoolers will enjoy with parental help, and that slightly older children can make on their own. Each of the twenty-one easy-to-make crafts features step-by-step illustrated instructions, and is made from easy-to-find household materials. Book jacket.
