Learning about Colours with your Toddler

Here are some ideas for learning about colours with your toddler:

  1. Go on a Colour Toy Hunt!  Start with crayons of each colour and have your child find toys that are the colour of each crayon.
  2. Sweetie Sorting!  Give your child a bag of Sweets and a muffin pan or ice tray and have them fill up each of the holes with one colour.
  3. Race for a ribbon. This colour activity combines learning with exercise, so try it the next time the weather’s got you stuck indoors. Tie different coloured ribbons to the tops of three long-handled wooden spoons, then put the spoons in a small bucket at least 2 metres away from your child. Call out the colour of one of the ribbons and tell them to make a dash for the spoons – give them a victory hug for their effort.
  4. Make Rainbow Cupcakes!  Make a batch of cupcakes and let your child ice each cupcake in a different colour of the rainbow.
  5. Water Colour Fun!  Use your food colouring and create jars full of different coloured water.  Put them in rainbow colour order.
