You’ll need: a printer, paper, crayons or markers.
Time to do some colouring again! This time spot which items to colour from the group according to the instruction. The tasks vary in difficulty so feel free to adjust them to the age of your child or change them every time you play. Also why not use the colours your kids really like: purple ladybirds, pink kites – you name it? Have fun!!!
Print the files attached. There is only a black and white version of the activity this time. Follow the instructions written on each page as a guide on what to do. The point is to colour only selected objects on each page using a specified colour. This is a great way to practice spotting little details among very similar objects.
If your child is very small just use the images as colouring pages and let the kids figure out what they want to do with them. If they know their colours you might practice these either by encouraging the use of a particular colour or just by saying the name of the colour your child chooses. If they are older though and have already started to learn about numbers then there is lots of ways to practice these too.
Remember that you can use this activity every few weeks and change the tasks to keep it interesting. Change the colours or the details in the images your child needs to find in the pictures.
