Here's a quick and easy activity to introduce colours... Find some cardboard boxes and if you can, paint each one a primary colour, or simply colour in one side of paper and stick it onto each side of the boxes.  Get your little ones to help choose which colours to opt for and get them to help the colouring.

Head off round the house with your little, one hunting for small items that match the colours to put in each coloured box. Encourage them to choose what to put in, which items to reject for being the wrong colour and ask them to hold the boxes.

Some ideas of things to go in:

  • Crayons
  • Play plates/cutlery
  • Socks
  • Play fruit
  • Small balls
  • Coloured blocks

When you have collected a good selection, mix them all up and see if your little ones can place them in the right boxes, naming the coloures each time.  Ask where each ones goes, and give lots of praise if they get it right.
