Color Pictures in a Photo Album

by Marie on September 16, 2008

We love looking at photo albums. My son loves to get out his baby book and see how cute he was. It’s fun to look at pictures of personal things. So I thought it would be fun to come up with a personal book of colors using pictures from around our house.

Supplies for Color Picture Book:

  • Camera
  • Photo Album
  • Colored paper – all colors of the rainbow

For each color, we took 3 pictures of 3 different things. We started with red and took pictures of things that are the color red: tomatoes, Elmo, and a magnet. Then we wrote the word “red” on a red piece of paper that’s cut down to size, fitting in a slot in the album. I also wrote the word of the object for each page so we could read it like a book.

The kids loved finding all kinds of colors in the house and wanted to include soooo many more pictures of their things. We may have to make a sequel to this one.

It’s been fun to look at our Color Book and see some of the kids favorite things. I think I may try this with letters next, taking pictures of items that start with letters of the alphabet.
