DIY Colour Learning Game for Preschoolers

I have a 21 month old son who is developing an interest for understanding colours. He has learnt blue and green, but I wanted to give him some tools to help him master the other colours through play. Children learn more and take in more information when they are having fun.

With this in mind, I created a colour sheet and dug through his toys to find toys of certain colours. You can print out coloured items (and even laminate them for prolonged use), but I thought he’d have much more fun using his own toys and it wouldn’t feel like such a ‘lesson’ if toys were involved.

If you would like to use my colour sheet design, you can download it here:

*I stuck my sheet onto cardboard to prevent it being ripped or scrunched.

The method is really simple. You might have to guide your child depending on their age, but the idea is to place the toys on their corresponding colour on the sheets. It is easy to switch up too. Swap out the toys for pom poms or even foods of a certain colour to keep their interest.
