Start with a mini photo album. You can find them at Wal-Mart and dollar stores for about a dollar. The type that holds 24 photos is perfect for this project.

Print and cut out the following cards. Remove the cover included with the album. Insert the cover provided in the same space. Open the album and place the first color name directly under the cover. Add the card with the correct color items in the space below the name. Continue until the book is filled.

To print, simply click on the printable of your choice. This will open the file in PDF format. Please keep all copyright information intact.

Note: The cards will print out clearer and brighter than the small thumbnails appear.

It doesn't take long to create a book of colors that is perfect for a preschooler. The pictures are objects the children will likely recognize and the pages are easy for preschoolers to "flip".

There have been some interesting studies done regarding how children learn color names. As incredible as it may seem, the studies show that children will learn color names faster if the object name comes before the color. Instead of saying "blue ball" or "red balloon", try saying...

The ball is blue.

The balloon is red.

It may seem simple, but if it helps children understand the concept of color easier, it may well be worth a try. We live in a very colorful world, and there will be many opportunities to teach the colors.
