i plan to post each activity we do separately and then organize the links on the "kids" page for easy reference.
the first thing we've done so far was a primary colored polka dot bath. i found the themed bath idea on pinterest from Play Create Explore and kept it in the back of my mind. the other day while shopping at target, i stumbled upon foam polka dots in the dollar section! score.
there were 2 colors that had one extra polka dot, so i used a punch to cut a few small ones for fun.i was blown away by how much emery's loved this!
on the Play Create Explore blog, her child sorted the circles by color on the wall - totally over emery's head right now.
- we play a basic game where i ask her for a specific colored circle and she hands it to me.
- when i have all of them in my hand, i give them back to her and she hangs them all back up, begging to play again! the more we play the better she gets!
i like that there are only 4 colors in the set - i don't want overwhelm her. i feel like only having 4 to choose from helps her learn these 4 really well. for different activities, i'll also keep it limited, but with different colors :-)
looking for more basic color toddler games? here's a post with a valentine theme!
what are your favorite color toddler activities??
more to come soon :-)
love and learning,
