For this reason I knew that he would love this book I found at the library:
After teaching him what each color light meant, I would quiz him while we were out driving around and he picked up on it so quickly. He regularly tells me what color the light is and what it means we should do.
One morning, after reading the book and reviewing what each light meant, I googled a traffic light coloring page and printed out three different lights. K colored each one one color, in the corresponding place. I was pretty impressed with how well he stayed in a certain area.
After we had three lights, we played "Red light green light." This was pretty entertaining with an almost 3 year old. He stood on one end of the room, and when I held up the green light and said go he would run as fast as he could to get me, until I held up a red light and he would run back to the starting position. Finally, after a few rounds of this, he got mad and told me to let him get me, which I did. Obviously this can easily be adapted for any age and it's so easy to do. He had so much fun and wanted to color even more after we were done. He's never colored this much!
