Ms A is three years old and is just starting to get excited about learning colours and shapes. She also loves to get active and play outdoors. She likes a challenge too. So with this in mind, I wanted to make an easy course for her to follow which would allow her to practice her colours and shapes and keep her focused in a fun active way whilst encouraging her recognition skills.
I did this by drawing a simple course on the floor in the backyard using paving chalk.
I started with just a few instructions for her to follow on a clear chart and took her through what each symbol represented. And after showing her how it was done by completing the course myself I let her jump, hop, tip toe and balance herself.
She soon got the hang of it and was zipping around whilst I sat and counted how long it took her.
It was such a simple set up and it kept her entertained and active for ages. And it was so easy to add more symbols for her to learn.
