The kids were playing and I was enjoying my coffee and browsing blogs, when I came upon this great idea for a color matching activity that is super easy to set up and sure to be a hit with the kids.
While I love doing complicated, messy and time-consuming projects, for my kids I've learned to stick to the ones that are easy, clean and simple. They just don't have the attention span for me to spend more than five minutes setting up an activity that will maybe last five minutes.
So this one was great for us. I grabbed two sheets of paper, my colored pens and drew different colored dots all over the paper. I also made sure to check I was using the same colors as the stickers I had on hand, and only drew enough dots to cover all the stickers on the sheet.
This was a big hit with Lucas (3.5 years old). He got it right away and happily matched up all the blue, green and yellow stickers first. (such a boy - he totally ignored the pink stars)
