Colours, popsicle sticks and a toddler

My little daughter refuses to acknowledge colours 🙂
Of course its a toddler we are talking about ..

How to familiarize when pointing to the routine objects dint help and I couldn’t do those so very interesting but painstaking crafts for her ?!
I got hold of crayons and found some popsicle sticks lying around.

I thought why not a simple matching activity for her? It wouldn’t be too overwhelming and its very easy peasy for me as well 😀
So I just had fun colouring them when she went for a stroll and when she was back she was excited 🙂
And I could finally make her interested in colours ..

So I think keep it simple mommy ! does the trick 🙂
There you go my little craft .. And I always feel if I could do something, ANYBODY can do it 🙂

I feel water colors would do more justice for even colouring but I did utilise what was available 😛 and definitely little A did not notice 😀

I have some more activities in mind with these popsicle sticks .. Will post them when I get to do action 🙂

    Nicely done… When my daughter was a toddler, I got hold of some water colours and asked her to paint them. I am not sure if she learnt colours, but she enjoyed the activity. Popsicle sticks and colours are a hit with small kids.

    This is super easy way to teach toddler. Mine is fascinated with colors, she keeps yelling color while pointing at any object regardless of where we are hehehehe

    I absolutely enjoy activities with kids and popsicles. We made ribbon flowers the last time round

    I like such easy to do DIYs, they save a lot of time and we get the work done too. Such a brilliant idea.

    Simple but a great way to familiarise kids with colours can even use wooden clips and colour them ..
