Suggested Family Activity • National Color Day 🌈
Today is National Color Day 🌈 a day to celebrate all the beautiful color that is around us. Did you know that color can affect your mood or the way you feel about something? Red, for example, is often used to show excitement, while blue is considered a calming color. What is your favorite color? Often, we use color in our home 🏠 to reflect our creativity 🎨 or we pick our favorite colors to wear on our clothing or on our belongings to reflect our personality.
One way to celebrate color today is to … well, color 🖍 Whether you use crayons, colored pencils ✏ markers or paint 🖌 you can celebrate all the shades rain of color found in the world.
