Colour is a part of everyday life. Having a strong knowledge of the different colours comes in use in many situations that children will be exposed to in the future. Colour recognition is a key cognitive developmental step for toddlers, as it plays an important role in object recognition and is a vital part in helping children to develop their descriptive language skills, which in turn encourages clear communication and understanding. The ability to identify colors is considered a marker and milestone in a child’s cognitive process. Recognising the colours and identifying the colour names is an important part of a child’s development. Early identification of colours helps to create the cognitive link between visual clues and words. Students of Grade Nursery were introduced to “Purple colour”. They were introduced to this colour by showing them the mixing of two colours- Blue and Red that makes a new colour-Purple. Then they were shown PPT for the same and some real objects like hair brush, water bottle, crayon and book that were in the same colour. Students mixed the colours themselves and made Purple colour on their own by using water colours. They drew purple colour objects like brinjal in their drawing file and then coloured it purple. This activity helped the students to enhance their cognitive skills and fine motor skills helped them become more creative.
