How do I teach my 3 year old son colors?
Gather red toys and place them in a basket.
Gather blue toys place them in a basket.
Tell the child,”This basket has red toys in it, and this basket has blue toys in it.”
Dump the toys/items out and have the child sort and match by color. Practice this activity many times and when you are confident he knows the difference between blue and red, add another color to this game. Play this game with all the colors.
If the child can’t see the difference in red and blue after repeated tries, consult an eye doctor to check for color blindness.
It could be color blindness, here is a link it was difficult to find one for children but this one uses shapes and common objects.
As someone who is going to school and majoring in early childhood education this is my suggestion.
Anything you do with your child mention colors. When you pour milk say something like “lets get your BLUE cup and pour you some milk” or “Put on your WHITE socks.”
Even if he is just not performing for you which is typically saying colors a lot with everything you do will only strengthen whatever knowledge he may and likely already has.
I hope this helps you.
