Book: The Usborne Big Book of Colors

The Usborne Big Book of Colors is a large board book, with beautiful illustrations, that is perfect for learning colors. It has a color wheel that spins, information about mixing colors, and an acetate page at the end to show how colors change when mixed with others. This book “introduces all the colors of the rainbow and their variations.” There are tons of great color words and descriptions. As an adult, this is probably one of my most favorite books.

The book is supposed to be for kiddos that are 2 years old and up. Younger kiddos may enjoy looking at the beautiful illustrations and the black and white pages would be great for helping with eye development in infants. As your child gets older, you can use the book to do seek and find activities or something similar to the activity below.

Activity: Color Hunt

Materials: None

This activity is oh-so-simple! After looking through the book, take your child on a color hunt (indoors or outdoors). Decide on what color you are hunting for and let your child find items that color. Take a bag along to collect objects in and then when they have exhausted their search, sit on the floor and examine their items. I like to leave to book open and match the objects’ colors to one of the illustrations on the page. I mean, what a fun way to start learning colors. It’s a simple and easy-to-complete activity that doesn’t require anything extra.

As you can see, we searched for all things red. I helped quite a bit with the activity, as my daughter isn’t even two yet, but I have a feeling she’s going to catch on really quickly. I’d love to see your photos of your color hunt! For more Storytime Saturday activities, click HERE.
