This came about because Jo and I were at her Well Visit waiting for the doctor in a room covered in hand prints So to pass the time before the doctor arrived we were High-Fiving the Colors on the wall. We laughed, we reached, we banged the walls as we squealed the names of color with delight… which is when the light bulb went off.
What better way for a toddler to learn her colors then to play a game high-five(ing) them?!
Of course the first thing I did when I got home was start planning what room I was going to plaster with hand prints, after I decided to think rationally (luckily before I whipped out the paint cans) I came up with this:
Now that you are all set and ready to go, it’s time for you to know what to do! Our game goes like this, High Five Red…High Five Green..etc. Pretty complicated right? (kidding)
I know it seems pretty silly, but let’s face it what games do you play with your kid that isn’t? At least they will walk away from this game knowing a bit more than they did when they woke up! (that’s the goal right?)
Let me know what you think! And if your kid loves it as much as mine does!!
P.S. If you paint your room full of hand prints I will be totally jealous, so make sure you send me a pic to BRAG about it!!
