I love this stage of learning, where everything is new and exciting. In fact, today I am going to share with you easy and fun ways for teaching colors. Toddlers are naturally attracted to bright things, so why not use that excitement to teach them.
Learning colors is an abstract concept for young children and can take a lot of time and patience. Some kids may pick it up quick, and others might take a year or more to fully understand the difference in colors and be able to name them. The best thing is to apply color learning and activities in your everyday life.

Teaching Colors to Toddlers
Easy DIY Color Wheel!
- Trace a large circle onto a piece of cardboard (I used a large bowl that I had as my guide)
- Cut 6 pieces of different colored felt into triangles (try to make them close to the same size)
- Spray the cardboard circle with spray adhesive than tack down each triangle piece.
Watching the children explore these blocks on their own is a lovely sight.

We love peg boards. Not only is Bells learning her colors, but we are also working on language development and fine motor skills.
Calming Bottles can be such a joy in any room. They brighten up a space and the children love looking at them. At the same time you can use teaching moments to talk about the colors.
