The Colour Yellow

Having colour theme days is a great way to introduce/teach/reinforce the colours to your toddler. 

When my youngest son was 2 ½ he showed no interest in learning his colours.  We read him a few books about colours and used his colour sorting toys but he still mixed them up.  Once we started these theme days he caught on quickly and started to proudly exclaim what colours he was wearing or what colours were on his toys without prompting.  He even named what Colour Day he wanted to do next.

My eldest son was a little jealous about his little brother getting special theme days so we started to wait until he got home from school to do the colour hunts.

PREPARATION:

Go through your crayons, markers, paints and construction/craft paper and remove all the yellow ones to use for this theme.

Set aside any yellow dishes (cups, plates, bowls, spoons, paper straws etc.) you may have and use these for snacks, lunch, dinner etc..

Set aside yellow clothes, like t-shirts and socks, for your child to wear that day (and yourself, too, if you’d like).
