What do you do with all of the leftover plastic eggs from Easter? Grace is just starting to learn her colors so I figured they would make a great part of a color matching game for her. This activity is easy, fun, and there's no messy clean up!
I quickly cut out some construction paper circles to match the eggs and placed them on the bottom of muffin tins. I put the eggs in a large bowl and showed her how to match them up.
She's just starting to learn colors so a lot of her time was just spent putting the eggs in the holes without much regard to the colors, but I know that this is an activity that we can keep using. I sat with her and we named the color of each egg as she put them in the hole. She decided to rearrange the circles several times and "match" them again. She also took the eggs apart and put them back together in different color arrangements. This activity kept her busy for about 20 minutes. After she was done, I put the circles and eggs in a plastic bag so that I can pull them out quickly for those bored moments.
Do you have any tips for teaching colors to a toddler? I'd love to hear them!
