Learning colour recognition at home doesn’t have to be expensive, most people have these things laying around. Just laminate and play. I hope your children enjoy this as much as mine do.


  • 20 Paint sample cards
  • 2 Sheets Laminate
  • 20 Wooden pegs and glue


  1. Laminate your paint sample cards.
  2. Cut matching color strips and glue to wooden pegs.
  3. Show your child how to match the right peg colour to the laminate sheet and peg it on!

Notes... Two and a half year old DD (Dear Daughter) recognises 12 shapes perfectly. She has had Montessori based teaching now for a year or so.
