Montessori Inspired Activities for Toddlers #1 | Introducing Colours

the mommy blog

Yesterday, kids got up a bit early and I haven’t had a single ‘goodnight’ in the past few weeks (that’s a different story though). So  since everyone was up, I thought of making something colourful for the Little Thing, who is not yet familiar with colours other than Orange and Green.

This activity will helped my child in ‘matching’ the colours. I didn’t want to rush things up and confuse her. So as of yesterday, it was only matching the colours for her. May be in the coming weeks we can learn their names too. 🙂

So if you want to make this activity for your child, you’ll need the following things:

  1. Foam sheets in colours of your choice
  2. Cardboard sheet ( I upcycled an old carton)
  3. 1 Colour paper.
  4. Scissors
  5. Markers
  6. Glue stick

All I did was I cut out a large piece of cardboard and wrapped it with a coloured paper, so that it looks neat ( You can totally skip this part, if you have no time).

And then glued, foam pieces on to the card stock. Remember you will need two pieces in the each colour, for your child to match them with one another. And that’s about it.

Initially, I put the pieces beside and asked her what she wanted to do with them. She twisted and turned the pieces and pulled them apart. My fault, I shouldn’t have asked her that in the first place. Hehe.

I then told her to match the colours and she did it in no time. MashaAllah.

Fun Fact:  The Little Thing is this type of a child, she knows what a Popsicle stick is and never forgets to asks for it when she wants to play with them. But when I ask her the colour of the sky, she instantly says green! LOL Now you know her personality. Her major source of learning is her big sister.

This is how it looked once she finished it. It’s easy, inexpensive and fun. I hope you’ll give it a try.

Please comment below and let me know how you like it. So that’s all for today. Stay tuned because I have loads of fun activities coming up.

Happy Homeschooling Momma!
