In teaching anything to young children, repetition is the key! Colors is one of the first concepts that toddlers are capable of learning. The best way to introduce concepts like colors to toddlers is to continuously talk to your child about colors. This should go hand in hand with teaching your child to talk. Rather then simply saying, ”Look at the puppy,” use phrases like, ”Look at the brown puppy”, ”See the brown puppy?” etc.
The next button is Color. Open it and see for yourself the number of colors displayed to choose from. The colors and their shades too are visible and from these numerous range of colors, select the one that will go with the background that you have chosen in the previous step. Once the selection is over, you can click on the edit button at the bottom of this. This will help the computer to read the instructions and make the necessary changes. Thus the background color and image will have been changed to your liking.
When I first start teaching toddlers colors, I like to start out simply. I will give my toddler a red crayon and a white sheet of paper. Allow your toddler to freely scribble on the paper. As they are coloring, reinforce the fact that their crayon is red by saying, ”That is a pretty red picture,” ”Are you using a red crayon?” ”This is red” or ”See your red picture?” You can also find a printable picture of an object that is red like an apple, and have your toddler color that picture by giving them a red crayon. Another simple craft project that you can use to teach your toddler colors is to simply cut out circles from red construction paper and help your toddler glue them to a piece of paper.
Use felt pelt pens to decorate the pages individually or for writing captions below each picture. Felt pens are available in various designs and colors so you will have a wide variety of options. Shells, colored stones, ribbons, and colored buttons, makes good scrapbooking designs. If you have pictures of your summer vacation on the beach for example, then the shells makes it an ideal design. If you are one of those people who take great pleasure in black and white photographs, you can try decorating them using metal pieces by embossing them. Do not use bright colors if your scrapbook contains black and white photographs.
When you think of firefighters, you cannot help but think about those big, red firetrucks that carry them to the scene of the fire. I think it‘s safe to say that the firetruck is recognized by children and adults everywhere, so this is a great place to start for scrapbooking. The most popular and recognizable colors related to firefighting are bright red with white. Make sure that you use these colors liberally in your page, but take care that the white does not overpower the red. For example, if you‘re using more white than red in your design, the overall feel of your page will become related to a hospital, rather than firefighting.
You can also use activities and games to teach toddlers their colors. A great activity to teach the color red is to create an orchard of red apples. Do this by cutting out apple shapes from red construction paper and laminate them. Place a small piece of Velcro on the back and place them on a bulletin board. Have the toddler ”pick” the apples and place them into a red box or create. Reinforce to the child that they are picking Red Apples” as the child does the activity. As the child grows and learns more of their colors, you can mix in yellow and green apples as well. Use a red create, a yellow create and a green create and have the child place the corresponding apples into their color create.
