Pre School Color Game

Here is a simple and inexensive game that helps little ones learn their colors.

All we used is color swatches from the paint store. I pick 2 strips from each color family.

Cut in between the colors.

I put out one of each color and Cheyanne matched the rest.

The game is a little too easy for her, but it worked great in my 2 year old pre school class.

You probably know this but you can have your daughter match the different shades of each color. That might be a little more challenging for her.

What a great game! I always look at those paint samples and think, "What could I do with those??"

Jennifer said...

What a neat idea. I can't wait to try this with my little one. =)

I just posted a similar post the other day. I found Mickey Mouse paint chips!

When we did it we turned them over and played Memory with them.

I do like this idea and I'm sure there are lots of variations on it that would be fun too.
