Now if I had actually read the package first, I'd have known that there are only 6 stars included (2 of each color) and I probably would have bought more.
Even with just 2 stars of each color, my 3 year old had a lot of fun sorting them out.
I labeled paper plates with the color words, not because he can read yet, but to create a print-rich environment and reinforce that words have meanings. I would touch each word and repeat it as he laid a star on the plate.
Hooray for a simple, minimal prep, activity that teaches colors and color words in a hands-on playtime experience! No worksheets!
