Sugar Aunts: Playing With Color: Toddler Play

Playing With Color: Toddler Play


We've been on a BLUE kick around here these days.
This was a fun little play activity for the Toddlers.  Nephew (19 months) was with us one day and LOVED doing this.  
I put the blue inner tube and a little basketful of balls out on the dining room floor.  I put one ball into the center of the inner tube and he was INTO it!  Little nephew went crazy putting the balls in the center, taking them out, putting them back into the basket.  This was FUN!
This little (and EASY...seriously, it does not get much easier than this...) game will be coming out again.  This Aunt can clean up the breakfast mess when something like this is going on!

What are we learning with this activity?

Toddler Eye-Hand Coordination

Toddler Visual-motor skills

Cause and effect

(if I throw this ball into the center, it might bounce out...)

Learning colors

Gross Motor Skills (throwing, rolling, bouncing)

**Look for more color-themed activities coming to this page, soon!**

  1. From when my daughter was very little she would organize her toys by color and size. She is a teen now and still the same, she did not get that from me. :-)

    1. oh, that is so funny! Not one of us sisters is like that either. You should of seen our bedroom growing up...LOL! We now laugh about the giant mess that it was!

  2. Oooh, I love how you used the tube too!! I bet my boys would love that! I'm so glad you shared this at Teach Me Tuesday at Preschool Powol Packets!

    1. Thanks! We have the tubes blown up still, and it has been fun to see what the kids come up with by playing with them. They have only gotten stuck in a tree twice ;)
