While color seems like a super simple to us, for a young child color is a pretty complicated concept. For a minute put yourself in their shoes. They are just starting to learn terms of the items in their ever day lives such as shoes. Now the game is being upped because shoes are not just shoes. There are red shoes, and blue shoes, and green shoes. And well colors come in multiple different shades. So those dark blue shoes and those light blue shoes are both exactly the same general color even though they don’t look the same. Confusing stuff people.
So, as you start learning colors with your child have patience and make it fun. Activities such as this red sensory bin are a great way to start introducing colors in a playful stress-free manner.
