I began by folding little books out of each color of construction paper. I labeled each little book with the corresponding color word. Then I set up a tray for a color search. I included magazines and ads. I included colorful stickers. I also included a variety of pens, pencils, markers, and crayons in a variety of colors.
Logan can pick up the tray independently, pick a color, and add to his books. So far he has scribbled on a few pages, added two stickers to his blue book, and added a picture of a black lego character and a blue car. After he finishes the books, he can "read" them!
I really like Teach Preschool's idea for introducing colors one at a time. I made this "kit" because Logan already knows his colors and just needs review. Also, it's a great quiet time activity for when his little brother is napping... or for when his little brother loudly playing in his room during nap time-- which seems to be the case these days!
