Colour Sorting – Activity for Children
For this activity you will need groups of different coloured objects (blue, red, yellow, toys, fruits, clothes). Mix your items together and allow your child to sort through them and group similar colours together. This activity can be extended by asking them to retrieve a new item of a certain colour. For example, you can ask “Can you find me something blue from your bedroom?” or “Can you find me something pink in this room?”
What they learn
Colour sorting encourages colour recognition as well as organisational skills and cognitive function. Grouping everyday objects by colour exposes our children to a more in-depth idea of colour as it includes a wide range of shades that they must identify and categorise using their critical thinking skills.
This activity is suitable for ages 2 years and above.
