Hands- On Color Matching
Studies have shown the benefits of children practicing matching skills at an early age. One of the main benefits is that helps stimulate learning and a love of learning. Also, it helps them start using the process of elimination, and other simple reasoning skills to solve the task at hand.
This particular hands-on game is easy and free! I just picked up some free paint strip cards at Walmart (I tried to get one of each basic color, red, brown, blue, yellow, orange, etc.), cut the rectangle end off the sides, glued that onto a clothes pin. How do you play? The child needs to match the colors by clipping the pin onto the correct color square.
