DIY: How to teach your toddler identify colours #1

Generally, children learn to identify colours by 18 months. They can name different colours by the age of 2.5-3 years. So it’s good to start teaching colours to your little one at as early as two years. Start from the basic ones as red, green, yellow and blue because toddlers usually like bright colours.

Usually…because, I know how strange it can sound, the first colour that my son started to identify was…black. I just wanted to introduce him more positive colours. Obviously, I’m aware that teaching colours to toddlers should be fun and creative. Children learn best when they are engaged and enjoying themselves. Using different games and fun activities can spark your child’s interest in colours and help him retain the information more effectively.

colours matching activity with bunnies

So I’ve decided to prepare for my son lovely colour matching activity. It’s so easy that everyone should be able to do that. Let’s call it Bunny tails colour matching 🙂 Perfect game for springtime!

What you need:

  • Scissors
  • Felt sheets
  • Pompoms
  • Bunny template
  • Velcro circles
  • Glue gun

Colour matching activity for toddlers

First of all, you need to cut your bunnies out. Simple as that. The biggest problem (but not so big) will be with velcro and pom poms. Add one side of your velcro to the bottom of each bunny. Remember that you need to use the same side for all of the bunnies and the opposite for the pom poms. Now it’s a time when you can use your gun! Glue gun obviously 😉 Don’t try to do it without a glue gun. It will fall right off. Toddlers are really strong:P

I can assure you it’s worth it. Your little one will have a lot of fun plus its mess free! Every busy mom will be pleased 😉
