Corban does not know his colors yet. Is it the 3rd child syndrome because I haven’t had the time I had with the other ones? Is he still young? Is he color blind? I still don’t have an answer for you. I can’t say we did this activity and things were suddenly clicking. It doesn’t make me think this activity is useless. It’s still fun and educational. He might just not be ready to know colors yet. No pressure. We kept it fun. At what age should kids to know their colors? According to Baby Center, he should be able to name one color by 36 months. He’s just 2, so I have some time.
I took a white bag, cut a green piece of paper to size and taped it in place. Abby decided she wanted to color on the bag with a green crayon, so there you have your green spot in the middle.
The concept is simple. Travel around the house trying to gather things that are green. He needed a lot of help, and he still couldn’t identify green in the end. However, we had fun. You can change the bag color at any time to practice other colors.
