After the success of the Montessori Color Tablets that I made, I wanted to look for other ways for Henry to learn to sort colors by shade. Since Henry loves to stack, I thought these little flower pots, inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, were perfect. I used the same technique I used for the color tablets.
So, I added increasing amounts of white paint to the blue color and painted both a clay flower pot and wooden ball. I repeated until I completed a set of five.
The colors turned out a little too similar for my taste, so it will be a big challenge for Henry to complete. But he is sure enjoying trying. Seriously, he is in love with these. And I love that they challenge him to match the color and work his fine motor skills.
I could barely get pictures for this post he was so into them. I can't wait to make some more colors for him.
