This is a fun way to teach colors and application by matching. Start as early as 12-18 months and extend into more complex tasks as children get older.
I have provided some suggestions for extending this for those of you with gifted toddlers and/or for those who know their colors well.
I have included a checklist to document mastery of each skill.
The child will be able to identify colored crayon and match it with a same color item.
The child will be able to match a colored crayon with the name of the color.
The child will be able to play a memory game and remember the placement of colored crayons, name of the color, color blocks, or pictures.
The child will be able to identify the color and verbally say the name of the color.
