Something to occupy busy, active minds while developing our most necessary skill: awareness. This is also a technique to support a child in transitioning from one situation to another.
Help your child learn this game by keeping the order of the colors correct and consistent. The game can be played everywhere, anywhere, anytime, and with anyone, continually building awareness skills. The important thing is to begin in a place that is familiar to your child. By doing so, in addition to giving your child something to occupy his time, he will take with him a sense of familiarity even when he is somewhere he has never been before, helping to reduce his anxiety in a new situation. By seeking out objects with colors in their specific order, he will feel just a bit more at home.
