Title Learning Colors with Educational Toys for
Preschoolers When I was a preschool teacher long
ago I would help the little ones learn colors by
having a celebration day. For instance one day we
would celebrate the color red and everything in
the playschool would be that color. There would
be red play dough, different shades of red at the
paint easel, red counting toys and red water in
the water table. Snack would be juicy red
watermelon. We would have red stories and songs,
and we would play "I spy with my little eye
something that is (you guessed it!) Red"!!! The
children and I would be wearing red. You get the
idea... One day I was dressed head to toe in
yellow. A father was dropping off his child and I
asked him if he knew what we were celebrating
today he looked me up and down and seriously
said, "Banana Day?" I think I enjoyed the
planning and the hoopla more than the children
and I don't know if this extravaganza really had
any major impact on learning colors.
Children learn their colors through every day
activities. Dad points out the color of the
child's shirt when he is helping her dress. Mom
asks her to find matching socks. A youngster
picks out the color of jello to make. Parents
play "I Spy" with their kids. When making icing a
grandparent may mix 2 colors to make a new color.
There are so many ways to help your child in
learning colors. Educational toys for preschool
are particularly excellent for encouraging color
recognition. Large stringing beads in primary
colors are super for developing fine motor
skills they are also great for matching, sorting
and identifying colors as the kids thread the
beads onto the string. Jumbo sized colored pegs
and pegboards are also fine for learning colors.
Pegs that come in different shades of color are
an additional bonus. Counting toys for toddlers,
such as rainbow counting bears with matching
sorting cups are perfect for learning colors. In
fact any colorful

counting toy can be used, especially when
partnered with colored patterning cards. Learning
colors should not be a chore it should be part
of daily living and play. Educational toys for
preschoolers and counting toys for toddlers can
provide additional opportunities for your child
to learn colors. For more information click here.
