  2. At change time have a game to see what colour on the colour wheel the spinner will land on or roll the cube to see what colour is on the top
  3. You and your toddler will wear as many clothes of the colour is landed on, for example start by saying to your toddler that it is time to change their clothes, “Let’s spin and see what colour we are going to wear today, oh it landed on yellow, now let’s find as many yellow clothes that we can wear!”
  4. Allow your toddler to dress themselves. Feel free to comment on their actions. For example, you might say, “Wow, you put your red shirt on all by yourself”.
