I've been trying to make a conscious effort to talk colors with Eliza lately. I randomly came across this post and it reminded me of this flannel which I use often as a children's librarian and have adapted to other themes as well. For Eliza it became a bunch of different colored houses and a cat hiding underneath. We sing:

"Cat, Cat, where are you? You better come out we're looking for you!
Are you in the red house?"

At first Eliza was afraid of this little game, which was funny. She would shake her head and say "No, no, no, no." What a goof! But now she is happily hiding the cat under the different colored houses and then looking for the cat. Colors will come eventually....and it may just be time to make a home flannel board.

home flannel boards are the best! I love making flannels. You are reminding me to get ours out again - haven't since we moved.

Hmm - maybe she has also learned about object permanence, or whatever it's called, realizing that things don't cease to exist just because you can't see them.

We used to play with different colored train cars and dinosaurs! Oh, so many years ago now.
