During the toddler and preschool years as well as learning some basics to set them off for school children need to learn some social skills one of those is turn taking. This week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids post works on both a colour knowledge and turn taking. Based on the theme “Bedtime” and the book – Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney we have created a Pajama Domino Game for you to print, download and play together taking turns to match the different colour pajamas that the children are wearing.

Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney is a classic rhyming book ideal for toddlers and preschoolers. Perfectly capturing the way that bedtime goes in many houses around the world with young children the book rhymes its way through getting to bed and not wanting to go as the little llama doesn’t want to leave his Mama.

Preparation Needed

Download the Pajama Domino Cards and Cut Out.

I printed on card stock – to make them sturdier you could use a cardboard box and glue the cards on and cut around – this would make it easier for toddlers and young preschoolers to grab the cards an Amazon box is ideal as they are made of thicker cardboard.

If you are playing in a small group then I recommend printing out multiple sets of the domino game and combining them.

Taking in turns we laid the domino to match the colour of the pajama – if we couldn’t go then we took a Domino from the pile.
