Traffic lights are great fun for toddlers. They have big, pretty lights, they flash, and they’re changing all the time. But beyond all the giggles, understanding and recognizing them are important safety skills every toddler should know. Coloring is a great way for little ones to engage with and learn about traffic lights, especially if mom or dad are there to guide them.
