Preschool Learning Colors

Preschool children love learning about colors. At this age, they are starting to identify colors all around them. There are so many easy ways for your child to play with color. Check out these games, food, and craft ideas for a colorful learning adventure.

Games are a great way to teach children. They are so excited about having fun; they usually don’t mind learning something along the way. Try these out with your children.

1- Pick a color, and have your child search for objects in the room (or house) that match that color. You could do the reverse of this by playing “I Spy” with colors. For example, you say, “I Spy something yellow,” and then have your child take a turn spying something yellow.

2- Put something of a certain color on the floor or a table. Have your kids bring other items of that color next to the first item. Tell your kids the colors of the rainbow, and have them gather items from the house to make their own rainbow.

3- Talk about color when your child gets dressed each day. Ask them what they color they would like to pick for the day. Have a “get dressed in X color” day. Have you or your child pick the color of the day, and have them try to get dressed from head to toe in that color.

4 - When you are out doing errands, pick a color and identify everything of that color as you go.

Food comes in a rainbow of colors. Learning colors from food is as close as the grocery store. Pick a food color idea below and dig in.

1. Create a rainbow cereal necklace or bracelet. String together fruit-flavored circle-shaped cereal pieces on a length of yarn. For a more colorful creation, use multicolored yarn. When they eat their creation, have them tell you what color each cereal piece is.

2. Pick an assortment of foods of one color to serve together, such as carrots, orange juice, and orange colored crackers. Or pick two or three colors and come up with different food combinations such as yellow and green - bananas and green beans, pineapple and kiwi fruit. For some food items, you can add a few drops of food coloring to make it match. Be careful because some children are sensitive to food colorings.

Kids who are learning their colors will naturally flock to an art table. Tickle your creative side with these colorful crafts.

1- Use watercolor paints to make your own creation along with your child. Talk about what each of you is doing. Make a point to choose a variety of colors so you can mention each name.

2- Have a variety of markers, colors, colored pencils on hand as well as a variety of colored and white paper. They can easily experiment with different shades and intensities.

3- Make a sidewalk chalk art gallery. Encourage your kids to use just one color or several to make creations on cement.

4- Put a few drops of food coloring with water in ice cube trays. Make two or three cubes of each color you have. Freeze, and then put a few cubes of different colors in a bowl together. Watch what happens when they melt and blend colors!
