I have been working to help XGirl learn her colors. While QBoy has pretty much mastered the basic colors of the rainbow, XGirl is still struggling with naming the colors. I came up with this simple color matching activity using objects from around our house to help her learn her colors – and to have a bit of fun in the process!
Note: For more resources, printables and activities related to learning colors, please see my teaching colors to kids page.
This was a fun colors activity we did not too long ago using some cards from my Color Cards printable. For this activity, I decided to stick with just the basic colors of the rainbow.
I started by letting each kid pick a color card. XGirl picked purple while QBoy picked red.
Then I had them run around the house collecting objects matching the color of their card. They laughed so hard as they ran around the house dragging things into the living room.
And in the end, we ended up with six piles of objects representing the colors of the rainbow.
