Matching colours started a long time before we started learning colour names. I took the opportunity in every situation to teach my toddler colors. Read about my colour treasure baskets here.

Like when we were in a market, I showed him red, yellow and green capsicum/bell pepper and how they were all same but yet different.

I showed him a black crow, a yellow lemon, a red postbox and a green leaf. But when I pointed out to something and asked what color it was, he always replied “green”. Yup, that was his favorite color for a long time 🙂

We learnt colors when we shopped for saris ,every time we wore a dress, we learnt colours in vegetable shops, in wholesale plastic shops, in toy shops, in chocolate counters, in pastry shops, in kitchens .Literally anywhere. 🙂 I also had this sensory bean bags made.

This was the first time he matched colors
