I'll start by talking about his new favourite book
It is a book that I gave E during the holidays. I found it at a local library at the last minute, right before leaving for the holidays. I thought it was well made, but I never thought it would be such a hit.
This is the first side of the pages. I like the graphics, the vivd color, and simple text.
But the cool part is this:
so many possibilities! Perfect for matching games.
What you see on the last picture is an activity I set up for him one afternoon this week. I used his stacker, and combined it with the book.
I had him match the rings of his stacker to the colors of the book. We had loads of fun doing that activity over and over again during the day. And he has been asking me for it everyday ever since. (he gets the stacker out, he gets the book out, loud and clear honey, loud and clear...)
I decided to take a step further to this game, and create color boxes. I started with the primary colors, but the secondary will soon follow. E has already started to use them with the book.
They all contain different objects of the said color. E can manipulate everything in there freely. The boxes are easy to open and close, another activity E craves for right now.
His abilities are really exploding right now. I am amazed every single day at the things he suddenly does (out of nowhere it seems!)
Do you have any favourite game regarding colors with your toddlers? I'd love to have some more fresh ideas!
