I wanted to take this holiday as an opportunity to incorporate at least one learning activity, and this easy heart color matching activity came to mind. My toddler has been growing confident in his ability to match colors, so I took the step to challenge him a little further by creating hearts of different shades of colors. It was a little bit harder for him, but the joy in his face knowing how much he was able to figure out himself made me happy that I challenged him.
If you find your child has grasped an understanding of something you taught them, it's good to try something a little bit more difficult to challenge them. It can be a bit frustrating for them sometimes, but they may also have fun, and more importantly, t will instill some self-confidence in them.
