Songs about Colors
The song we were able to sing alone was called I See Colors Everywhere. We didn't actually watch the song on YouTube, but it was really easy to remember, so I was able to sing it with T on my own. As I will detail in my next post, I created some rainbow shakers/sensory bottles with dyed rice and beads this week. We used them when we sang this song to display each color. Because they doubled as shakers, these sensory bottles were a nice addition to the song as both a visual aid and musical instrument. I just held up each appropriate color as we said hello and goodbye to it, and they held his attention well thanks to the shaking sound.
When we had some other, older children participating with us, we sang The Color Song, which incorporated actions depending on what colors you were wearing (for example, if you were wearing red you pat your head). My toddler definitely did not understand the concept of the song, but he had fun doing the actions anyway and it was still a good opportunity to reinforce color vocabulary.
