We have been working on naming and correctly identifying colors in our house lately so I thought I would share some of the activities that we have come up. This seems to be an area that my daughter is having trouble with so we are trying a lot of different games and projects to keep her interested and learning.
I started with five colors however you could start with more or less depending on your child's level.
- First I showed my daughter each square and told her what color it was. Than I had her stand to one side. As I called out a color I told her to go and jump on that color.
- I started with yellow since she knows that color best. She was very happy to go over and jump on the square.
- While playing I would first wait to see if she went to the right color and then help her if she needed it.
- We've played several times and it keeps her interest longer than looking at a color book or sorting bears.
