Learning our Colors - Toddler Activity

It rained today...ALOT!  So what's a mama to do with a toddler?  Make up another game of course:)

My little one knows her colors already, but I want to move on to some basic spelling.

I gathered some popsicle sticks and construction paper in different colors.  I wrote different colors on each of the sticks (in their respective colors).


As I wrote on the sticks, my little one placed it on the appropriate color.



Next I made a little "house" for the sticks.  By folding the paper a few times and using masking tape on the edges.


I asked her to read off the color on the stick and then spell it before she put the stick in it's "house".  




She had a great time and I snuck in a way to learn how to spell the colors:)



Linking up to these great parties:)

  4. What a great idea. I love that you pushed the activity beyond just colors to letters and spelling. I am impressed. You are raising one smart cookie...I can't wait until she starts her own techy tips, I'm sure she'd have just as much to teach me as you do :)
