I was cleaning out this veggie tray from the small get together we had the other weekend and realized it would be pretty fun to upcycle. I took my son’s paints and painted each section except the middle a different color. The middle wasn’t painted.
My big plan was to get a bunch of Pom poms in those colors for him to use tweezers to put in their coordinating section, but we were playing today with just these blocks. He was so proud about his colors and organizing the items by color. I know he’s 2.5 years old now, but my friend’s daughter was doing this closer to 2 years old so I imagine this activity works for 18 mo-3 or 4 years, depending on development of your child.
