Learn the colour song.

Spread the love

Let’s learn the colour song today.  Children love colours and you can sing this song throughout the day with them.  I have often heard children talk about a colour then I will sing that colour and the rest of the colour song which they will then join in.  It is a great little song and fun to sing at art times when using a lot of different colours and mixing colours to make new ones.  The Māori word for the colour is said first followed by the English word.
