Colour fun

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.

Hi! I'm visiting from Hip Homeschool Hop. Buttons are great for many things aren't they :)? Have a great day!

Great idea - I'm going to try it for sure! I'm so glad to have met you through the Hip HS Hop. I'll be following for more ideas- thank you for sharing them! This is my first year (preschool) and I'm always on the look out for new things to try.
