Baking Tin Primary Colour Game

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.

What a great idea! Not only is your game appealing, but it provides an inexpensive educational source for preschoolers to recognize colors. You could also introduce the skill of "patterning" this way by showing the toddler how to make a color pattern -red, blue, red, blue, etc.

Really cute!
