Teaching Colors to Toddlers: 5 How-To’s for Parents
Color identification is a milestone for our children especially as it enhances their cognitive skills. Even when your children are not yet enrolled in our Preschool in Orlando, Florida, you can teach them color identification with the tips we recommend below.
- Play Color Games
Children are always excited when they play. They can also be engaged more when they are playing. Grab this opportunity to help them identify colors while they are having fun. You can start with color association. Name a particular color while pointing at its sample, and then ask your child to get something with a similar hue.
- Identify Colors Everywhere
In our Christian Preschool in Florida, we put up a very colorful classroom. We recognize that being familiar with colors everywhere helps a child to easily identify the correct color in the long run. Even when you’re at the grocery, you can describe a cucumber, for instance, with its color.
- Sing Songs
Children also remember songs easily especially when these are accompanied by dances. Play and sing nursery rhymes that contain lessons about colors. If you need some helpful ideas on this matter, our staff providing Child Education can help you.
- Do Coloring Activities
You can also engage your child in a coloring activity. This serves as a great bonding experience with your little one as well. When you color together, you get to mention the names of the colors. This way, your child will eventually remember what the color’s name is.
- Compare Objects
It is also practical if you get them to compare objects with different colors. This way, they will have a visual experience of how colors are distinct from each other. Find objects that are easily accessible at home so you will not need to buy any of these.
