Easter Learning - Chocolate Colours

D2 is learning her colours.  Once we had purchased back the stash of cheap and nasty foil wrapped eggs from D1, The Big D set up a little colour sorting game.

D2 had a great time and seemed to catch on really quick, even going to the toy box and presenting BigD with a yellow toy.  A very successful lesson I hear you say.

This video is her showing off her new skills!

She has become really fond of this "game" and has played it daily since Sunday - My baking session with the surplus chocolate may just have to wait a while.


  1. Toy companies spend millions advertizing complicated "learning games" with audio and visual capabilities and programed "That's Right!" self-esteem raising responces to the childs every move.

    I think your little game demonstrates how silly and out of touch the toy companies have become.   Keep it simple and let the childs imagination take over.

    Well done!

    this is such a great idea! i wish i'd thought of it BEFORE eating all of our eggs!

  4. Thank you.  It really is the simple things - just like cardboard boxes being more fun than the toys they package up.

  5. Thank you.  I am trying to think of a more permanent substitute. Those foil wrappers are looking pretty sad now!


I love to read all your comments, please take a moment to say hi.
