Cut out the colored shapes, and match them to their corresponding shape on the outline game board.
Paint Brush Color Matching:
This is a file folder Game I made for color matching. Instructions are included in the download, but you can see here how it’s set up:
This download comes with the letters in the boxes like below, then your child can match up the letter tiles to each card. For more of a challenge I also added blank cards for each color word as well. Both are included in the download along with colorful letter tiles, but you could use any letter manipulatives you want to spell the words. Includes 8 color words.
The word tiles come color coded to help younger children, for more of a challenge I also have black and white cards.
You can leave the color words whole and have your student match them up. Later when they are more advanced you can cut the letters apart and have them match the words using individual letter tiles.
Simply cut out each square, then cut in half along the dotted lines to make into a color matching puzzle.
Color Mixing Cards:
Using these cards, we made up some colored water and then used smaller scoops to mix based on each card. You can also use eye-droppers and put in one drop for the number of cups shown for each color as well.
My First Color Book:
If you didn’t already make this fun little book, here it is again! After printing, simply fold the 4 sheets of cardstock with color words on them in half and staple them down the center. I attached a colored piece of ribbon to each page according to its color. Then let my daughter cut out the images and glue them on each page based on its color word. (We did a couple pages per day depending on her attention level.) Afterwards we read through the book together!
Shades of Color
(to be used with paint chips): This is a simple file folder game I made to work on matching different shades of colors. Visit your local hardware store and grab some gradient paint chips for each color on the color chart. Cut out the colors and have your student match them below each base color at the top of the chart. I used a 1 1/4″ square punch to punch the colors out, but you can use scissors or a fun shaped punch as well!
