Printable preschool activities can be a big help in teaching children colors. Learning colors can be difficult concept. Showing kids several items of the same color can make the process easier.
The following color matching activity is simple enough for toddlers. The concept is easy... match the pictures to the board of the same color.
For younger children, start by using only two or three colors. Once they have successfully placed the colors on the correct boards, add more colors.
Start by printing out the game boards. I recommend using card stock paper and laminating to make the game more durable. Cut each of the board pages in half to create eight different colored game boards.
Next... print out the colored game cards. Cut on the lines to form nine cards for each color. Let the kids have fun matching the cards to the correct board.
This game is also a good way to help children understand colors that appear to be alike. Many children are initially confused by the colors red and orange or black and brown. Seeing the colors side by side helps them to see the difference.
