Simple colour match activity idea for baby and toddler
I Just set this up for the Little Lovely to play with tomorrow morning.
At 10.5 months he’s probably a bit young for colour matching (I think, but let’s see what he does tomorrow), but we will:
talk about the colours
and I’ll demonstrate (model) sorting them
I think these will be important aspects if the kid is a bit too young to sort the colours themselves → Learning through observation (vicarious learning), and also the social and fun aspects of doing it this way will be important.
Other things he might get from this activity: Motor skill development, sensory play (items have different textures and functions), exploration, learning about colours.
I used things that I already had about the house for this. The items are:
Blue: wooden round shapes, dolphin bath toy, a large lid from fridge pack of baked beans, linky loop, and a small plastic baby food pot
Green: crab bath toy, rattle, linky loop, and gum massager stick for teething
Pink: ball, wooden triangle shape, measuring spoon, and a roller with Velcro texture.
They are sitting on two pieces of LL’s clothing (blue vest and green jumper), and one of his toys (child safe mirror turned face down).
