SENSORIAL COLOR ACTIVITY: Matching Foam Sheets

SENSORIAL COLOR ACTIVIY: Matching Foam Sheets


The idea is to match the sheets with the same colors. The simple, yet important concept of "same " and "different" can be introduced to a child who is 18 months old or older. Adults can use their judgement, some children can be ready even before 18 months, but may not be able to complete the entire activity all bythemselves without help.

When doing this activity, you may just want to begin with the basic three colors: red, yellow and blue. Once observed that the child shows readiness for more, slowly keep adding more colors to it.

The material used here is simple, i.e. colored foam sheets, which are generally used for crafts. They may come in different thickness. So the thicker ones will be better to use. As they are often precut, so don't even need to cut them. The best thing is that this material can be reused for a different purpose, once the child grows out of it. It's available at dollar shops. So economical at the same time.
