DD2 is obsessed with buttons and will sit for hours and play with a tub of buttons or beads and sort them into piles. I thought I should make use of her obsession and help her learn from it.
I printed off the button game (available on my download page) and gave her 4 buttons of each colour in a pot and left her to it. Needless to say we had smiles all round.
After she had sorted them into the right piles I called a colour and she had to point to the right buttons.
