Day 152: Color Hunt

Here is another learning activity from UniversalPreschool.com.  This is an excerpt from an article written by Diane Flynn Keith.

Remember, only do these learning activities if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn, while building “readiness skills” for school or homeschool success.

~ Color Hunt ~

Traveling long distances with little ones can be a stressful undertaking but it doesn’t have to be.  Here’s a great game you can play in the car.

Say the name of a color and ask your child to name things that they see outside of the car that are that color. Introduce new colors that your child might not know. If you see something that is silver, for example, point it out. Then try to find other silver things. Even a box of 16 Crayola Crayons will give you color suggestions that your child might not be familiar with yet.

Of course, you don’t have to limit this to what you can actually see. You could think of things that are a particular color. For example, you could ask your child to name some things that are yellow; banana, corn, lemon, daffodil, etc. Then, try to find yellow things in the car and outside the car.

The Crayola website lists the top 50 favorite colors and provides a sample of the color you can see.
