Art Center Activities for Preschool Lesson Plan: The Color Brown
Brown Finger painting: Let your preschool students finger paint with brown paint. For added fun, cut out shapes of bears, dogs and potatoes for your students to paint brown.
Brown construction vehicle tracks: Construction vehicles work in dirt. Dirt is brown. Set out some toy construction vehicles such as tractors, bulldozers and cranes. Let your preschool students dip the construction vehicle wheels in brown paint that you have set out on a paper plate. Now let them roll the painted wheels across a large sheet of butcher paper. When the paint has dried, you can tape the butcher paper to the floor and let the students continue to play on it with the construction vehicles, just without any more brown paint! To make this even more of a sensory activity, add dry dirt to the brown paint.
Brown potato prints: Cut potatoes in half. Let your preschool students dip potato halves in brown paint that you have set out on paper plates. Have them make brown prints with the potatoes on white sheets of construction paper.
Brown collage: Set out brown pipe cleaners, brown beads, brown markers, brown crayons, brown ribbon and brown stamp pads. Also, set out old magazines and safety scissors. Let your preschool students find brown pictures in the magazines and cut them out. Have them glue the brown magazine pictures, pieces of pipe cleaners and ribbons to a piece of brown construction paper. Let them also draw on the collage with brown markers and crayons and use stamps with brown ink.

Other Activities for Preschool Lesson Plan: The Color Brown
Brown sensory table: Fill your preschool classroom’s sensory table with dried brown beans.
Brown show and tell: Have your students bring something brown from home for sharing with their friends during circle time or show and tell.
Hot brown potato: Play a game of hot potato with your preschool students! Gather everyone in a circle, play some music and pass a potato from one person to the next. The child who is holding the potato when the music stops is “out.” Or in an effort to spare feelings, the child holding the potato when the music stops can be the one to stop the music during the next round! In that way, there are no losers!
