There are several ways that you can help your child to learn his or her colours. Try incorporating colour into play, by creating colour water displays for a sunny window, or by playing with clay or play dough in different colours. You can have your child name them, or you could try mixing them, and experimenting with results.
Talk to your child about colours too. Asking him or her which colour socks he or she wants to wear, or what colour the flowers you see on a walk are, are both simple ways to incorporate colour into your three year olds day. Try pointing out different colours when you read together, or ask your child to point out a blue car, or a red apple in his or her books.
Allowing your child to sort items, whether it’s plastic cups or blocks, into colour groups is another way you can help your child to learn colours faster.
