Chameleon's Colors- 31 Days of Activities Based on Children's Books

Our book we read today is Chameleon's Colors by Chisato Tashiro.
Today Aubrey made her own colorful chameleon.

I printed out a chameleon here.
(I changed the format to landscape and increased the size to 200% so it was larger.)

To begin, I put out four bowls and put some shaving cream in each one.
I had Aubrey squirt food coloring onto each pile of shaving cream.

Once each bowl had food coloring, I had her mix each bowl with a toothpick.
She then took a spoon and plopped the mixtures all over her chameleon.

Once the chameleon was filled with shaving cream, I had her scrape the mixture off with a spatula.
The spatula got most of the shaving cream off but I had her finish scraping the leftovers with a plastic knife. (Aubrey is 4 and did fine with using the knife. However, they can obviously cut your child so please use caution.)
Aubrey's colorful chameleon!

Aubrey LOVED doing this activity!
I thought it was really, really messy!!
**The food coloring can stain so be careful with clothes and your furniture.
