Learning colors by going on a "Color Hunt"
- Give a child a bag and ask him to find 4 red objects in the home and place in the bag
- Next, have the child find and add 4 yellow objects to the bag
- Finally, the child adds 4 blue objects to the bag
- The child will return the bag to you
- Remove each object one at a time from the bag and let the child tell you the color
- Together, return each object to correct spot in the home
*Objects can be anything! (clothing, stuffed animals, notebooks, candies, markers/crayons, napkins, lids, washcloths, toys, etc.)
An adult can secretly prepare for this activity by placing red, yellow, blue objects within sight of the child.
Before returning the objects to their original spot, place all of the objects back into the bag and have the child remove each object and count how many objects are in the bag (12 objects).
