Orange Tiger

Oh, I saw an orange tiger,
A tiger, a tiger;
Oh, I saw an orange tiger
With lots of black stripes

With stripes all in black
In the front and the back;
Oh, I saw an orange tiger
With lots of black stripes.

Learning Colors for Kids: Black Orange Purple

Try This

Today's colors are orange and black. Can your child think of an animal that is orange and black? Give a name to the animal and then tell a story about the animal. Have your child move like that animal (swim like a fish, walk like a tiger, slither like a snake), then draw a picture to go with the story.

Go on a scavenger hunt inside and find all of the items in your home that are black and orange!

Here are two book recommendations for today. Check out the picture book collection at your local library, where there are lots of books to choose from! Find nearby libraries
