Petanque to learn colours

My youngest is learning her colours at the moment.  She knows all the names of the colours, it is just the matching up to the right colour that can sometimes be a bit tricky.  I like to make learning fun for her and so we often play games to help reinforce different colours.

Early this week my youngest and I played Petanque with a set from Plan toys.  The idea is that each team has a coloured ball, with Plan toys set this is a Brown Monkey, Blue Penguin or Orange Tiger, you throw your balls towards the smaller green or red ball and the team closest wins.  We played a little different.

I put the small green and red ball on the grass.  Then asked her to throw a brown or blue or orange ball towards either the green or red ball.

My youngest and her baby did really well.  They stood inside a circle and threw the right balls in the right direction.  The wooden balls are really brightly painted and just the right weight for a two year old to pick up.

I love the little cheeky patterns of the animals faces.  It was a lovely game to play with my youngest and a great way to have some fun whilst learning her colours

I was sent a Plan Toys Petanque set to review.  All words and opinions are my own.
