Usage: Color can be used to prompt baby to give you the color of something. Just point at the object, and make the sign color. This is a great intermediate game to play with your baby to help them to learn to develop their understanding of the colors. Of course, before you do this make sure Baby has at least a few of the basic color signs.

    Can I use the ‘color’ sign to signify coloring with crayons etc.?

    ADMIN – Hi Kristine,

    Instead of using the same sign for two different concepts, we suggest you reserve color to only refer to red, green, etc. For coloring in, instead use paint. As adults we are used to English being ambiguous with the same word often referring to multiple concepts, but for a young child that can be very confusing and is best avoided where possible.
