Day 303 - Fun Games to Teach Your Baby About Color

Today's first time parenting tip - Name and call out colors for your baby 24/7

As early on as 1 month old, your infant can tell the difference between colors. And since the world is filled with lots of different hues, its a very easy thing to teach your baby about the world around them.

Here are some fun activities you can try to teach your baby the difference between red and blue:

  • Play catch with different colored balls. Call out their colors as you roll them toward your infant

  • Play peek-a-boo behind different colored sheets. Say "Peek-a-boo purple!" when you pop out from behind it

  • Spend an afternoon watching cars go by and saying the color each time

  • Have a coloring session where you only use one color to make a picture

  • When you're reading picture books, be sure to say the color of the things you see too. It's not just a duck, its a yellow duck

  • At the grocery store, as you put different items in hold them in front of your baby and say the color first

What color games do you play with your baby?
