It’s because using them in the traditional way is boring.

Name the Colours In a Fun Way
- Start off by holding the flashcards face down so they can’t see the words or colours.
- Say the following phrase: clap, clap, turn around, I’ll show you the colour, you tell me the name.
- Get your toddler to do the actions as you say the little phrase. Change the phrase to make them do different movements. Like jumping, for example.
- Show them a colour as soon as you’ve finished the phrase. Then ask them to name the colour as quickly as possible.
- Repeat with the other colours
