What is Purple Bee?

What is Purple Bee?

As a parent, we always want the best for our kids. Don't we? It does not matter whether one is a SAHM (stay at home mom) or WM (working mom). Our life style is a lot different from that of our parents and grand parents. We don't see children playing on the streets. Instead television, IPADs and video games have taken over. While it is not possible to stay away from these gadgets completely, moderation is the key.

As a parent, when we ask the child to not watch the television or IPAD, we should also guide them on what they should be doing instead. That is where most parents have a problem. This is a bigger problem during summer, when the kids are home. This is where Purple Bee activity kits come to the rescue. The activity kits come with all the materials and instructions required to complete the activity. The parents can just pick up a box, sit down with the kids and spend quality time.

The internet is full of information. Parents bookmark lot of craft activities that they want to do with their kids but never get to doing them. Often, they do not have a material that is required to do a craft or they do not know where to go and shop for that item. With Purple Bee activity boxes, that part of the problem is solved since parents need not go hunting for the craft materials.

Purple Bee boxes are based on different themes and each box comes with 3-4 activities based on a particular theme. They are fun, and at the same time help develop various skills.  Watch this short video to know how Purple Bee activity kids can help your kids.

Books on Colors

Books on Colors

Here are a list of books on colors. We love them all. You can use it along with our Colors Themed Activity Boxes. Want to know more about Purple Bee Activity Boxes? - Click here

1. Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you see - Bill Martin Jr/Eric Carle

 This is a book that will grab the attention of even a two year old. The book introduces the child to animal names and colors.The repetitive text makes it easy for children to remember the lines and say it along. A must have in your child's library.

2. Dogs colorful Day - Emma Dodd

The story about a messy dog introduces the child to colors and numbers. The illustrations are beautiful and child will make you read the book again and again.

3. Mouse Paint - Ellen Stoll Walsh

There cannot be a better book to teach color mixing. Three mice discover paint - red, blue and yellow. Each mouse dances and swirls and makes new colors.Very entertaining book for children who are learning about color mixing for probably the first time.

4. Lemons are not Red - Laura Vaccaro Segar

This is a book that will allow the teacher/parent to pause and ask questions in between. Each page offers a sneak peek at what comes next and the kids will be eagerly waiting to see if what they predicted was indeed correct. This is a great book to involve the child as you read it to them.

5. Freight Trains - Donald Crews

A great book for kids who love trains. The book depicts different types of freight cars, caboose, tender and engine in different colors. It is a quick read and works well even with children who won't sit through book reading sessions.
