Color Collision

Teaching colors to your LO is more simple than you think and truly fun.

Don’t stress it. Keep it natural and not contrived.

If you say “that is a red truck” also say “that truck is red” so your child begins to see that “red” is an attibute of the truck such as “small or fast”.

Color is an abstract concept, so be patient. Most children begin to identify color names after the age of 18 months but will often confuse them through the age of 4 or 5.

Sorting: This is the easiest to help explain colors. Sort tiny toys; balls; food; paper squares just about anything into containers or go on a Color Hunt with these cute bags decorated by your children with a color to match.

Color games

Lay construction paper on the floor and have a bean bag toss to the color that you name. Better, yet, use this little color cube (made from a tissue box) to roll the color.

Hidden inside the Color Cube are strips of matching colors. Your child can pick out a strip and roll the cube for the desired color.

Cover the sides of a tissue box with construction paper squares. Toss the color cube to identify; match and choose colors.
