How To: Set Up A Color Matching Activity for Toddlers

We love this color-matching activity shared by @BringingUpBabe on Instagram because it enables toddlers to use their minds to distinguish the colors and their whole bodies to complete the match. 

toddler indoor activity: color matching

What to prepare

All you need to set up this activity for your child are pieces of colored paper and a box of objects for your child to match, as seen above.

For a younger child, provide a limited set of items for them to match.

For an older child, they may be able to find items themselves around the house or from a specific play area.

Place the colored paper in a row and demonstrate for your child how to place a matching object on the paper.

Preparing the environment is a foundational concept of the Montessori approach to learning.
