PLAY

Colors All Around

So many colors to see and talk about! Baby may be just starting to notice colors so it is a good time to begin describing the beautiful colors she sees. When she picks up a toy, describe the color and compare it to something else the same color (like her shirt). These fun conversations show baby how delightful colors are!
