W is now pretty happy identifying most colours and one of the games which I found helped with this is as simple as can be.
He just loves to play with OXO cubes!
Once he has finished eating I will often grab the boxes from the cupboard, red, yellow and green, and place them in front of him.
We will then tip them all out, his favourite part…
…and I will encourage him to put them back into the right coloured box.
He is quite happy to to do this over and over, tipping them out, and re-sorting into appropriate boxes…
…even building towers with them.
This also allows me time to get the dishes done!
This is such a simple and easy game with kitchen cupboard staples.
Skills this will improve:
- Colour recognition
- Colour naming
- Colour matching
- Fine motor skills putting cubes in and out of the boxes
