Colors are one of the first concepts we teach our kids. As far as I can remember, we started exposing our daughter to colors through different play activities and books as soon as she can sit on her own.
While my daughter can already identify colors in English, she is just learning them In Filipino. Admittedly, my child has some challenges speaking Filipino as we converse with her in English since she was little. If we can do over, we probably should have exerted effort in ensuring that one of us spoke to her in Filipino too. (OPOL – One person, one language).
To help engage her in learning the language and learning about Colors, here are some of the activities and materials we use to supplement her learning. It also includes activities we did when she was a toddler.

This activity is always a hit with the little ones. You can use any materials that can be easily sourced or readily available at home. You can use buttons, water beads, pompoms, toys, or, popsicle sticks. You can also use the rainbow bear set, which is available from Shopee.
Here are some color sorting activities we did through the years.

The books and activities are suggestions that I hope will make learning more fun. You can tailor-fit according to your child’s learning style. Remember to talk to your child because learnings happen even during simple conversations too.
