First Friday Giveaway!

giraffe pinkIt’s the first Friday in February, and that means it’s giveaway time! This month’s giveaway is all about color—colorful pens, colorful markers, colorful stickers, colorful notepads. Oh, and there’s also an adorable plush giraffe that’s looking for a home. The giraffe appeared in the Dr. Seuss tale And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. I’m thinking that if given the chance, he could also star in Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees!

Since this giveaway is all about color, leave a comment on this blog that tells us your favorite color and you’ll be entered for a chance to win February’s giveaway prize. Just be sure to leave your comment before midnight February 12, 2017. We’ll announce the winner right here on the blog, and we’ll also notify the winner at the email address used to submit the comment.

Happy February!

  1. Happy February!! My favorite color is blue. I find it to be a relaxing and calming color. I would paint my preschool classroom blue if I were allowed to.

  2. Yellow is my favorite…especially during these dark winter days. Seeing the sun makes every day better, and I decorate my room each year in bright, yellow smiles to brighten things up AND to remind me to be positive and to always smile! 🙂

  3. I like all colors (my students invariably ask me each day, “What is your favorite color?” in order to make me a wonderful creation). I guess my favorite is peach; it is flattering to all skin tones; bright, without being overwhelming and fits with all seasons!

  4. Purple is my favorite, just like my grandmother. Wish she was still with us. We used to pick her purple irises from her garden. Such a fun color too

  5. I love sparkly colors…gold, pink, teal. All my kids love them so much…they brighten even the greyest days….just like my precious students.

  6. I have a very old copy of “…Mulberry Street” that I read to my preschool 4s class. My favorite color is purple; any and all shades and tints!

  7. I love the color pink – it is bright and cheery. Our preschool is painted yellow however – I find this color to be a great color for our school. It is a happy color and goes with anything.

  8. Black!!! Every color looks great with it- love doing colorful projects and mount them on it – and of course you look awesome wearing it!!

  9. My favorite color is pink ??. I love pink so much…. reminds me of hearts. Pink has been my favorite color since childhood.

  10. I love both sea glass green and mermaid tears blue. They are both calming and mysterious. Add a little dinglehopper silver, and some bright white and it’s an under the sea adventure. Could you imagine Ariel’s name for each color or even a giraffe?!

  11. I LOVE RED! Bright red like the color of red roses and cardinals! I love to see a bright red Cardinal at my feeder against a fresh white snowfall!! Brightens the winter scene!

  12. Blue, Carolna blue! That’s the color of the sky here in our new home state! The 2 year old that I am a nanny to, absolutely loves the book, Giraffes Can’t Dance.

  13. As we sing our valentine songs and make our valentine cards and gifts, I have to say RED!!
    Happy February to everyone!
    Thanks for the super ideas just when we need them, and for the contest!

  14. Yellow! My preschoolers will say Miss Linda your favorite color is yellow. Right? This happens whenever we are working with colors.

  15. I love all the colors so I answer the question of “What is your favorite color?” with a response of “Rainbow”. I tell my students that there is no such thing as girl colors or boy colors because God gave us all the colors for everyone to enjoy.

  16. Blue is definitely my favorite color! Though as an emotion it seems a sad color, I teach my students that every color can have its own meaning for you. Blue, for me, is love and happiness.

  17. My favorite color is any shade or hue of purple. In fact, my daughter is using it in her wedding colors because she loves it was well.

  18. My favorite color is GOLD!!! But….I also love bright colors such as yellow like the cute giraffe in the bag and light blue like in a sunny day!

  19. The color that makes me feel most calm is olive green. I have it all thru my house. BUT – I wear a lot of pinks because I like the energy I feel when I wear it.

  20. My favorite color is RED. That is my make me feel good, power color. If I know I have ucky things to do on a specific day I just wear red and it’s not such a icky day after that.

  21. All Autumn colors! I love reds, oranges, yellows/golds, and browns. It makes me feel all warm and soft inside and out! Thanks for the opportunity to win and share the “colo” and giraffe with my students!

  22. As I always tell my students, my favorite color depends on what it’s on. I love pink, but I wouldn’t want a pink house or car. Colors are so much fun, and it is possible to love every one of them at any given time.

  23. My favorite color is purple. It is a symbol of royalty. I love the richness and boldness of the color. What makes it even more special to me is that it is also my oldest granddaughter’s favorite color…she is 5-1/2 years old.

  24. Wow! believe it or not that’s a hard question…I love COLOR, and have so many favorites. But if I have to choose just one it would be one that’s really not a color at all…WHITE! It makes me happy and reminds of what’s still clean and pure,(LIKE BRAND NEW SOCKS LOL) in this challenged world we live in.

  25. I teach preschoolers, and they need to learn the basic eleven colors for kindergarten. Therefore, I like different colors like peach, teal, lavender and turquoise, so they can learn a few more colors for kindergarten.

  26. Ever since I was blessed to go on a trip to Ireland, all shades of green have been my favorite color because it is very lush and green there!! I always read “And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street” every year to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday since it was the first book he wrote 🙂

  27. My new favorite color is red! Never used to like it but I needed a change this yr so I changed my fav color too and its fun!

  28. To be honest, Periwinkle is really my favorite, but I equally love :YELLOW; It has always been the color that cheers me up. I’m fussy about ‘which’ color of yellow, I’ll admit. 🙂 To me yellow is just happy. And if it’s the right shade it goes well with several colors.

  29. I love green! All shades of green! Lime green, dark green, grass green, etc! I love frogs and my students love them too! So green is a perfect color for this frog loving teacher.

  30. If you ask my students, they would tell you purple was my favorite color, but in reality, it’s grey. My grandmother’s eyes were grey and they fascinated me so much as a child that now every time I see grey, I think of her.

    • This cute “giraffe” would be great to share in our Kindergarten classroom!! We love ❤️Dr. Seuss!! – Mrs. Debbie Neal’s Kindergarten Class 2017

  31. I love purple and green. They have always been my favorite. My kids would love that giraffe. He would be an awesome addition to our classroom!

  32. My favorite color is green. It reminds me of Spring and renewal. When everything begins to grow. It’s a bit of happiness when we leave behind the drab colors of winter.

  33. I love green!!! AND I love my Green Bay Packers!
    My school’s colors are green and gold – obviously a
    match made in heaven!

  34. Red! It’s been my favorite since I was probably six. This would be awesome to get, as I’m soon to be a first-year teacher! I’m graduating in May.

  35. Like all the “colorful” personalities in my three year old class, I would have to say my favorite color is the rainbow, because I can’t say which is my favorite since I love them all, like I love all my kids!! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas you always share with us!!

  36. Green is my favorite color. It has been ever since I was a little girl. It is such a calming color, yet can be very vibrant. Green is the color of trees and the plains which is were giraffes live, which also happens to be my favorite animal.

  37. My favorite color is green. It is the color of all things outdoors:leaves, grass, plants, moss, etc. Green is my happy color!
