quite a while ago i was looking for ideas and activities for toddlers and came across this blog post.
colour baskets i call them.
the idea is to introduce one colour at a time for a period of a week or so. all the items should show most of the colour being introduced. for example if i were to put a hat in, it would need to be prodominately red. not a bit of red with other colours on it. that would make it confusing.
we have introduced blue already and are now onto red. we used blue paint when introducing the colour blue and now of course are using red.
when i have finished introducing the primary colours i intend to put all the items into one basket for some colour sorting activities.
