We are thrilled to be joined today by Caroline Urdaneta, who writes the craft-tastic blog, Salsa Pie. Caroline came up with a colorful activity to do with your child and help hone their color recognition skills. Enjoy!
My family loves KneeBouncers! It’s such a great place to find games that, along with activities at home (including craft projects), are fantastic teaching tools for preschoolers.
I’m excited to share this fun Play with Colors that will help your child learn colors. It’s a super simple, super doable craft project that’s perfect for any busy mom. As an added bonus, the no mess set-up makes it a great fit for toggling between this activity and a KneeBouncers color game!
To get started you will need just a few simple supplies:
- One white felt square
- Felt squares of different colors
Lay a white square of felt on the table.
Cut the different colored felt squares into tiny squares. Sort the squares into colors and name them.
Have your child create a design out of the tiny felt squares and as they create designs, talk to them about the colors they are using. Ask questions and give directions such as “Can you find a green square? ” or “What can we made using green and yellow squares?”
The possibilities for this project are endless and the no-mess set-up makes it an easy project t do again and again creating different designs each time.
