This color recognition game with stickers was so much fun to make and play! I’m excited to share it with you as part of the “Learn with Your Craft Stash” series! 21 days of learning activities you can make with your craft supplies! You can see the other great ideas for using stickers to learn at the end of this post!
Materials needed for the Color Recognition Game:
One package of foam sticker flowers in 5 or 6 colors
One piece of 12″x12″ scrapbook paper
Game markers for each person playing
How to create the Color Recognition Game:
Create a path by using a rotating pattern of the colors chosen. You can do either option 5 or 6 colors. We choose 5.
To make the game longer, you can use more small stickers and to make the game faster, you can use fewer large stickers.
How to create the flower cube:
Print the cube.
Color the flowers to match the stickers that you are using.
If you are only using five colors, leave one side of the cube white.
How to play:
Start at one end of your path.
Taking turns, roll the cube and move to the next flower that matches that color.
If you are using only 5 colors and you roll a white flower, you can choose to either lose a turn or roll again.
The game ends when one person reaches the other end of the path. You must roll the color that matches the final flower to win.
This game works on several different skills while kids feel like they are just playing!
- Color recognition
- Color words
- Taking turns
- Good sportsmanship
- Counting (count the number of spaces you move each time)
And the game is quick enough that little learners do not get bored or frustrated with the length.
