The best teacher your child will have is YOU. Color activities are everywhere! There are so many opportunities during the normal course of a day to teach colors.
When you are getting a child dressed in the morning, mention the color of their clothes. What color are the breakfast foods you are serving? What color are their toys? The grass? The sky? Learning colors is a significant milestone that takes time to learn. Concentrate on one or two colors at a time... and soon enough your child will be telling you the color of items.
