A Rhyme of Colors
Put on some colorful clothing and play this rhyming game together. Your child will learn colors along with body parts.
What to do:
- Dress your child in a colorful outfit today.
- Recite this color rhyme to your child. (With repetition, he may learn it and recite with you.) Invite him to follow your actions. Point to the color you recite as you do the movement.
If your clothes have any red,
Put your finger on your head.
If you’re wearing any blue,
Put your finger on your shoe.
If you're wearing something green,
Wave your hand so that you’re seen.
If you have on something yellow,
Give a smile like a happy fellow.
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If you’re wearing any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Stamp your feet with all your might!
