No Palate for Colours

By 17 months, Olive was able to recite her numbers from 1 to 10 and a little more, in 3 different languages, and also a third of the alphabets but colours aren’t quite her thing yet. When asked the colour of an object, Olive’s favourite answer is blue, sometimes purple.

So I tried a little colour-sorting activity with her. Drew some boxes and labelled each box a different colour so that we could place objects we find in the house in their corresponding colours.

Looks like fun?

Nope, not at all for her. She got bored real quick and made her point by introducing other play activities for us instead, all the time pretending that this DIY activity sheet was covered by an invisibility cloak.

Looks like mama has to come up with better ideas.
