Find the bee- Toddler color learning activity

A couple of months back when Sammy was showing interest in colors, I came up with this easy activity idea which is a big hit with her . This activity is so engaging and doesn’t need much prep and fun way to learn more colors. This would be an appropriate activity for 18+ months taby or whenever your toddler starts showing interest in colors. Apart from learning colors, Sammy learned how to close her eyes as a part of the game, we quickly switched roles and she asked me to close my eyes and she hid the bee under the flower.
She picks this activity from the cubbie by herself and starts playing on her own these day while I sit in the corner and cry seeing her play all by herself and doesn’t need me anymore.
