After learning their names and their first words, colors and shapes are the next logical step for most young children. As toddlers and preschoolers, they are incredibly curious and almost sponge-like in their quest to learn new things every day.
They soak up everything around them using everything in their environment to learn about the world around them.
While they’ll obviously learn a great deal just by exploring each and every day, there are plenty of ways that you can help them make the most of these opportunities.
Color posters are not only a great way to reinforce what they’re observing in their environments but they’re also a fantastic way to start introducing color words and building those early literacy and vocabulary skills.
When our oldest child was a toddler and first starting to show an interest in colors, I put together a few different activities and color themed sensory bins for him to pick and choose from.
We both wound up having a ton of fun with all of our color themed activities and while the plan is to continue those with our younger children, I also wanted to come up with something that could hang on our wall that we could easily glance at throughout our day.
Something that would reinforce the colors that we were practicing throughout our days.
These full-page color wall cards have been the perfect solution.
At first, we started with just a single card and hung it up on the fridge so that they could see it and enjoy looking through all of the pictures.
Since then, we’ve added all of them together and they now have a prominent spot where we can see them each and every day.
In total, this set includes 11 different color posters and each one prints on a full page, making the images and colors bright, clear, and easy to see.
The included colors are:
Once we printed them off I simply laminated them so they’d hold up a bit against various forms of toddler destruction and handed them over.
After we all had a chance to go through the posters and name the objects on each one, we hung them up so that we could easily reference them later.
We talk about each color and name them as we go but for the most part, they enjoy just looking at the posters at this point and naming the various colors.
Hopefully, if you decide to grab the color posters and hang them up in your own home and/or classroom, your little ones will enjoy them just as much as mine have.
