Tip: Learn Colors at Bath Time

Teach your kids colors by letting them choose a little bit of food coloring for their baths. With a regular box of blue, green, yellow and red, you can make a lot of colors. It helps them learn not only colors, but which colors mixed together make other colors. It also makes bathtime fun, and it doesn't stain the tub or the kids.

Tip: Baking Tin Primary Colour Game

Magnets in tin.

Materials

  • 1 baking (muffin) tin (an old one works great!)
  • *12 magnets (four each in red, yellow, and blue)
  • 1 package hook and loop tape or recloseable plastic mounting strip.( Like Velcro brand)

Directions

Attach the hook and loop to the back of the tin and hang it at kid level. Place one magnet in each cup. Help your toddler arrange them so the each colour is all together in line. Then mix them up and do it again. I find that my toddler will spend a lot of time mixing them up, then want some help to put them right. This could easily be adapted to be animals (mammals, fish, and birds) or foods (vegetables, fruits, and grains) or whatever suits your family.

If you don't happen to have a surplus of magnets lying around you can easily make your own with magnetic tape from the craft store. Simply cut to the size you need and glue to found objects. Old game pieces, buttons, small toys, etc. all work great!

Editor's Note: Because magnets could be a choking hazard to the little ones, make sure that they are large enough so this is not a problem.
