Let’s learn our colors through color sorting! This is my favorite way to teach toddlers colors, and to reinforce their colors as well. Gathering, sorting, and classifying all are crucial skills for little ones to learn because they help to develop our math, reasoning, problem solving and science skills down the road. Color sorting activities also help toddlers develop their language skills through labeling and pronunciation.
On top of all of these awesome benefits that color sorting has on little ones, theses activities are also perfect boredom busters! Sitting down new materials or toys on the table or in the floor always gets kids attention right away. Plus, new things keep their attention longer than things they see everyday. So, let’s get started entertaining your little ones and teaching them some crucial skills at the same time!
9 Ways To Teach Toddlers Colors
1. Toy Color Sort
For this activity, you can have your toddler(s) collect toys in a bucket or box of some sort and bring them into the living-room. Lay out the toys and the different construction paper colors together. Then, start sorting!
2. Cupcake Liner Pom Pom Sort
I love this activity as it also helps develop fine motor skills. You can order these jumbo tweezers for kids on Amazon, HERE. I’ve also seen them at our local dollar store before, so you can check there as well!

Put all of those ball pit balls to another use in this color sorting activity!
