Teaching my kids the basics about colors

I was looking for some color activities to do with my kids when I chanced upon this site. Well, its part of a site actually. Its called Carmine's Introduction to Color. Cleverly presented in the format of a rhyme, it teaches kids the very basics about colors as it guides them through primary colors, secondary colors, warm colors and cool colors. It also teaches the kids how to make a tint (by adding white) or a shade (by adding black). Basic, fun and to the point. I love it. I'm going to get my kids to watch it soon especially the little one. The older one knows her colors well by now.

As I mentioned the link I just shared is just part of a site called A Lifetime of Color. I haven't had time to explore it yet but it looks like something I would want to explore because its got lesson plans, activities and games all about colors or incorporating colors. If I find anything else thats interesting, you can be sure I will share it with you my dear readers.

I usually note down these sites for my own use and easy reference and at the same time if I can share it with others too, why not? I love blogging!


  1. So this is the one that you mentioned previously. It will be useful for me, coz I have been wondering whether Ian is colour blind or not - until now (3yo) still struggling with colours. He is good in every other aspects except colour.
    Can I share this in my blog too?
