Teaching Colors to Kids of Different Age 

The pictures of colors inside the Color Busy Book for kids work well for a differentiated set of ages. 


How to Teach a Toddler Colors

Around the age of two, toddlers begin to grasp the names of some colors and begin to excitedly point out which names they know.

How to use this Color Busy Book with toddlers:

  1. Point at the different images and colors.
  2. Describe the color they are seeing compared to other colors.
  3. Describe the images they are seeing. Say things like, “This is a red apple”, or “This is a blue bird”.

How to Teach a Preschooler Colors

This color busy book will also work well for preschoolers. 

How to use this Color Busy Book with preschoolers:

  1. Match the different items to the right colors.
  2. Show that the apple is red and that it is an apple – Red Apple.

These are the beginning stages of putting words together and pre-creating sentences. And even though they aren’t writing it yet, they are visually seeing the future approach to teaching English and learning to read.

Bonus: Provide your child with crayons or colored toys and match these with the busy book as well, for an easy matching game to learn about colors. You can even place them in a sensory bin for a fun color seek and find game.


How to Teach a Kindergartener Colors

Your kindergartener will likely need a more advanced activity than just matching colors.

Here’s how to use this Color Busy Book with kindergarteners:

  1. Match the different items to the right colors.
  2. Have them write out the words on a sheet of paper. For example, if they match a red apple to the color red, have them write Red Apple.

If they need a little more help before they’re able to write the words all by themselves, you can write the words first and have them trace over it.
