colour tablets (shopping game)

Baby Ebi can already match the 2nd set of colour tablets with no problem so I introduced him to ext. 2 (I think it is ext 2). Anyway, he lays one set of the colours out on the floor, top to bottom then the other cards get put randomly in the next room. He has to see which is the first colour then go and fetch the corresponding one from the other room, put it in his little basket then place it next to the first tablet. If he picks up the wrong colour he has to take it back and bring the correct one. It sounds quite simple but for a two year old, he sometimes forgets what he has gone in the other room for hahahaa (happens to us all!)

We have also done this exercise with other cards such and the fruit and art cards.

  1. Thank you for this idea, the shopping game. I downloaded some of your fruit 3-part cards, and we played this shopping game with them. (We didn't cut them apart.) Actually, first my daughter cut the four cards apart, which was also a great activity. So our cards are pretty wonky around the edges, but we also got a cutting activity out of it. The shopping game wasn't very calm, there was lots of running back and forth and screaming, but it was fun.


Thank you!
I love hearing from you and if you haven't joined us in Moms That Rock, come on over!
