This week we made a simple colour matching game using Theo's trains. This is a great game and can be used to help learn the colours of different objects and to practice matching skills.
First I asked Theo to name the colours then put the trains on what he thought was the matching colour.
Theo completed this task quite easily so I think next time I would perhaps get him to select the correct coloured train out of a whole selection of trains instead of having the correct ones already sorted out to make it more challenging. This game could used in lots of different ways to, say with pictures of fruit and vegetables to match colours and learn names. There are lots of variations to try!
