USE COLOR

Send your child on a treasure hunt for blue, red, green (you get the idea!) items. Not only will it help their color recognition, but it will also help develop their ability to investigate. For a more sensory experience, dye rice or pasta with food coloring and place in containers. Your little one will love digging through the rainbow colors.
