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.
