Blue Things

Look at all the beautiful blue things that are all around us from bright blue birds to dark blue crayons.

Blue Sharks

Great blue sharks are colored blue on the top, so when other animals look down from above the sharks look the same color as the sea, and they are colored white on their bellys, so when other animals look up from below the sharks look the same color as the sky. What great camoflage!

Blue Jeans

Do you know the origin of the words "Denim" and "Jeans"? The words actually came from 2 European port cities where the fabric for blue jeans was made, Genoa in Italy and Nîmes in France.One fabric called "Gene fustian" came from Genoa and another fabric called "Serge de Nîmes" came from Nîmes.

Blue Frogs

There are lots of green and brown frogs which are hard for predators to find because the frogs are the same color as the plants they are sitting on. The blue poison arrow frog has a different strategy. The blue poison arrow frog is easy to see because it is bright blue, but it's also very poisonous. The frog's color warns predators that it isn't good to eat!

Blue Birds

There are lots of beautiful blue birds such as the blue jay, the indigo bunting, the peacock and, of course, the bluebird.

What's your favorite blueberry recipe? Ours is definitely for blueberry muffins! Blueberries taste great with yoghurt for breakfast, but when they're cooked into a muffin the taste is heavenly.

Blue Grapes

Blue grapes grow on vines in places called vineyards. The farmers who grow grapes can sell the grapes as fruit, or use the grapes to make grape juice for kids or wine for grown-ups.

Blue Waves

Blue Skies

If you look at the sky you can see so many different shades of blue, from bright blue when the sun is high in the sky, to dark blue after sunset when the stars are just about to come out.

Blue Planets

Some people call Earth 'The Blue Planet' because two thirds of the worlds surface is covered by water, but in our solar system Uranus and Neptune also appear blue.
