Sponge Print
You can find already shaped sponges at most art and craft stores or you can make your own. Have your child dip the sponges into pink paint and press on a piece of paper.

Feather Headbands
Measure your child's head, and cut a piece of construction paper long enough to create a headband. Glue the paper together so the headband fits snugly on your child's head but is loose enough to take off easily. Glue the pink feathers to the headband. 

Pink Headbands

Pink Necklaces

Pink Rubbings
Cut shapes from paper doilys or sandpaper. Tape these shapes to the table. Have the children place a piece of thin white paper over the shapes and rub a pink crayon over the shape. 

Cookie Cutter Painting
Place a small amount of pink tempera paint in a large shallow container. (A pie tin works well) Show your child how to dip the cookie cutter in the paint and press onto a piece of paper to create a print. 

Kool Aid Art

Feather Painting 
Provide each child with a feather, pink paint and paper. Ask the children paint a picture using the feather as a paint brush. 

Balloon Prints
In a pie tin, place three to five teaspoon sized portions of different shades of red tempera paint evenly spaced about the area. Inflate a small balloon to a size which will easily fit in the palm of your child's hand. Show your child how to "dip" the balloon in the paint and press firmly onto a piece of paper. Let your child mix the colors, or use one color at a time. This is messy, but the results are wonderful.

Stamping Patterns
Use rubber stamps with pink ink to create a simple pattern on the top half of a piece of paper. Ask your child to help you recreate the pattern on the bottom half of the paper. Tip: Start with one stamp, and have your child pick which stamp you used. Start slowly and work your way up to more complicated patterns.

Picture Matching 
Find stickers of pink items. Place 2 identical stickers on the left and right sides of an index card. Cut the index in half, cut in a jig-jag form. Use a highlighter to highlight the edges. Do this with many different stickers. Have the child match the stickers, and line up the two halves of the index card. 

Memory

When finished, add legs and antennae with a black pen, or for older children, have them add the legs and antennae. 

Pink Jar
For older children. Fill a small jar with similar pink items. Ask each child to guess how many pink items are in the jar. For younger children, limit the number of pink items to less than ten. Record each child's guess. Count the pink items.

Pink Jar 2
Provide three identical jars with pre-counted red items of 20, 30, and 40. Label these jars 20, 30 and 40. Place 20 to 40 red items in a fourth identical jar. Allow the children to examine all four jars before they guess. Record the children's approximations. Count the pink items.

Pink Tracks
In a pie tin, place 3 to 5 teaspoon sized portions of different shades of red tempera paint evenly spaced about the area. Supply the children with washable toy cars that have wheels that roll. Have the children dip the wheels in the paint and roll across the paper. 

Fingerprint Pink Balloons
Put a small amount of tempera paint in a small shallow container. (The metal lid of a juice bottle works well) Show your child how to dip his/her finger in the paint and make a fingerprint on a piece of paper. (Alternative: Use a non-toxic ink pad) have your child make several fingerprints in several different shades of pink. After the paint dries, have your child draw strings on the fingerprints as if they were balloons. (Alternative: glue on string or yarn.)

The oh so popular MESS FREE Marble Painting
First you need a large plastic container with a lid. (I used a shallow peanut butter container.) Next cut out paper that will fit in the lid of the container. Place a few drops of paint into the container with a few marbles (be sure to observe carefully as marbles are a choking hazard) then place a very small amount of paint on the lid and pre-cut paper on the paint. (I use the paint to make the paper stick to the lid.) Place the lid on the container, flip and have the children shake. When finished, remove paper and allow to dry, and place a clean piece of paper in the lid for the next child. 

Fruit Loops Art
Have the children use the pink Fruit Loops to create a picture.

Fruit Loops Sort

Looking at the world through pink colored glasses:
Obtain pink cellophane wrap and many toilet paper rolls. Apply a square of the cellophane wrap to the end of the toilet paper roll and secure with a rubber band or masking tape. Each child should have one. Have the children look through the tube to see what everything looks like. You could also have five of these set up in your science area for the children to use, or bind two of the same color for binoculars. 

Goop
Mix 2 cups water with a little pink food coloring, add 6 cups of corn flour/cornstarch to make goop. 

Mixing Colored Water

Make a fishing pole out of a dowel or pencil, string and a magnet. Place the shapes on the floor and have the children sit in chairs around the shapes. (This may work better with a few fishing poles.) Have the children try to catch a shape with the fishing pole. Then, when they catch one.. show it to them and ask what letter or number it is.
Variation: For younger children ask what shape they have
Variation: Ask the child if they can catch the "a" or the "1"
