Teaching toddlers colors and textures can be really fun when you take it outside. Take several pieces of color paper, cloth or objects and write the name of the color on one side. Take the colored objects outside and have your child place them next to other plants, rocks, sticks, or man-made things that are the same color. It’s a great way for young ones to learn about colors, nature and get some activity time outside.

Take turns thinking of people, places or even objects and then having the group ask yes or no questions to figure out who or what you are. This is the perfect activity for a hike or even just sitting outside.
