Before You Start:
Gather empty clear containers of various sizes, and various pom poms in different colors and sizes. Be sure to include a good number of large pom poms.
Let's Get Started! Step 1. Fill the clear containers completely with pom poms. Try to vary the colors of the pom poms; you may even want to work with creating layers of color. The idea is to have the colors that are being taught visible from the exterior of the bottle for identifying and talking about. When the containers are filled, be sure to screw the caps on.
Step 2. After you have the bottles set up, get everyone in a group. Point to specific colors and ask them to identify each color.
Furthermore: Leave the bottles in areas where infants and toddlers play, so that when you're not engaging in the activity together, they can explore the bottles on their own.
