Viewing our world through a colorful lens in preschool!

The children in this classroom have a very colorful view of their world!

This classroom has the luxury of four large windows down low at child’s eye view. I happened by the classroom the other day and noticed that the teacher placed see-through colored cellophane on the windows for the children to look through.

There is an orange view…

There is a yellow view…

There is a purple view…

And a red view…

I had to see for myself how the world looks through each of these colors…

The purple, red, and yellow were each amazing to look through.  The orange was a little more subtle…

What a fun and unique way to introduce children to colors and a great conversation sparker as they view their world through each of these colors.

Hey there Deborah! I love how your posts are so much in line with what I’m doing or also posted. :) Here’s something I did last year… which I shared sometime last week. I like the whole window idea though! But if you can’t cover up your whole window, you can also try these!

I love this !! I was thinking of giving my kids different lenses to look through while driving, something to keep them quiet in a car this is great idea.

Hi when I was reading about the coloured windows I recalled many years ago the mothercraft nurse in charge of the daycare room I worked in had placed small coloured squares of all the various colours of celophane she used vaseline on the windows to stick them on……..this was done in the home corner area and during the day the sun would shine through and cause a prism effect across the carpet (rainbow) the children would walk through it ……and across that area…….They really enjoyed this
