Color Cards and Little chairs
Very clean and simple idea which can be introduced to children 18 months or older. Show the child how to place the cards on the mat, and then placing the chairs according to their colors. Children will be fascinated by the colorful objects that they would work with.
In the beginning show the child how to do the activiy, if he/ she is willing to continue doing the same, let him or her try otherwise complete the whole exercise yourself and put it back. End it with an encouraging statement, if he/ she would like to try it may be at some other time, he/ she is welcomed to do so.
TIP: Other colored objects can be used depending on the availability. Colored cards can easily be cut from card stock or precut card stock is another choice. Good idea to get the cards laminated.
