Inspired by An Idea On Tuesday's delightful small words for discussing colours, I decided to make some of our own. We started with red as we own a lovely big red tub.
The first thing I did was send the kids on a colour hunt around the house searching for red things. This got them involved and saved me time and effort!
Miss Pea and I arranged the red items including some water beads we'd made earlier and set the tub down, ready for DW's discovery.
DW ran his hand through the water beads enjoying the sensory experience.
He maneuvered the little figure around the space creating a narrative and excessing his verbal skills.
We also made a big mess on the deck but by the end of the day he could identify the colour red (previously he would only acknowledge the colour blue) which wasn't necessary but was a pleasure to watch.
