Color Activities

The best teacher your child will have is YOU. Color activities are everywhere! There are so many opportunities during the normal course of a day to teach colors.

When you are getting a child dressed in the morning, mention the color of their clothes. What color are the breakfast foods you are serving? What color are their toys? The grass? The sky? Learning colors is a significant milestone that takes time to learn. Concentrate on one or two colors at a time... and soon enough your child will be telling you the color of items.

Printable color activities are a great way to reinforce the colors and their names. Simply scroll down to find lots of fun ways to learn...

How about playing bingo with a cut and paste activity? Simply have the children cut out the color pictures (or give the pre-cut pictures to younger kids) and let them paste the pictures of their choice, in any order, on the bingo board. Each child will have two pictures left over.

Make a copy of the color pictures for the bingo "caller". Three in a row wins!
