The primary colors - in Hebrew.
red - adom
yellow - tzahov
blue - kakhol
Using a red, a yellow and a blue piece of paper (or crayon in each of these colors) hold one up and say the Hebrew name. Then mix these up and ask your child to point to tzahov, point to adom, point to kakhol. Ask your child to show you a crayon that is kakhol, a crayon that is adom, a crayon that is tzahov. Send your child to find a Lego piece that is adom, a fruit that is tzahov, a T-shirt that is kakhol... Stick to these three colors (the primary colors) and repeat often so that your child remembers the colors in Hebrew. If this is too challenging, play the same game using the words in English. You can also see how many blue things there are on a picture in one of your story books...

Primary Color Gross Motor:
Place the three primary color papers (or T-shirts in those colors) : red, yellow and blue on the floor - a few feet, or further apart from one another. Call out the name in English or in Hebrew and have your child run to that color. Change it up and have your child hop to the color you call out, or roll over to that color, crawl to the color, skip, creep on tummy, crab walk, gallop...
