4th of July Color Game Freebie

Today I have a fun 4th of July freebie for you!  We are working on color identification and this spin and cover 4th of July game is so much fun. With this game we are working on the colors red, white, and blue and sneaking in some fine motor skills too.  It's perfect for our 4th of July theme. It is quick to set up and I don't know many little ones that don't like to use a spinner :)  

You will need:

*a spinner: this one is pictured but I actually like these ones a little more.  You can also make your own with a pencil and paper clip.
*star stickers or favorite manipulative such as pom-poms or mini erasers

To play: spin and identify the color.  Look for an image with the matching color and cover with your manipulative.  Continue until all images are covered.

For additional 4th of July preschool activities you can find my themed pack here.  

There are tons of hands-on learning activities your little ones will love!  This 4th of July themed pack can be used with  toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners. The activities are easy to adapt to the child's skill level.  Here's a peek at what's included.

Come Follow Me: Alma 13-16 (June 15-21)

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.  I am excited to share these new Come Follow Me lesson helps with you for Alma 13-16.  As always I try to follow the topics in the Primary manual.  This week we will be talking about the priesthood, following the prophet, and trials.  All of the instructions, links, and printables are included in the download.  I hope you find something that works for your family this week :)

Here's a look at this week's activities:

Here's is a brief story of Alma and Amulek in prison.  I just wrote to help those that may be wondering what I was thinking when I created the story sequence cards haha.  Download the story here. The story cards are in the original download above.

"Hallo! Ich hoffe, ihr hattet alle einen wundervollen Sonntag. Ich freu  mich sehr, das neue Material für die "Komm und folge mir nach!" Lektionen Alma 13- 16 mit euch zu teilen. Wie immer habe ich versucht, die Themen aus dem PV Leitfaden zu verwenden. Diese Woche sprechen wir über das Priestertum, dem Propheten folgen und Prüfungen. Alle Anleitungen, Links und Druckvorlagen findet ihr im Download. Ich hoffe, ihr findet etwas, was eurer Familie diese Woche Spass macht :)"

25 Fun and Quirky Holidays to Celebrate in June

Can you believe it is already June!  This year has been very different and I am still trying to wrap my head and heart around so many things. As time moves so quickly I hope this will be a time my children look back on and remember the good memories we are creating together.  One thing I struggle with is that the days seem to all blend together.  These holiday calendars have been so much fun for my kids.  We don't celebrate every day and the ones we do it's something simple.  They don't care what we do but really enjoy checking the calendar, helping me plan, and enjoy spending time together.

This month I found 25 fun holidays to include on our June Calendar.  Pick a few or all and have fun :)
