Color Recognition Activities for Preschoolers

Learning colors is a natural topic for toddlers and preschoolers. We can incorporate it into all learning, from dramatic play to sensory play. Color activities for preschool should be meaningful and hands-on.

Color activities for kids might include:

  • Color sorting activities
    • Students can find hidden objects (blocks, pom poms, buttons, etc.) in the sensory bin, then sort them into buckets by color. Similarly, you might place different colored objects into a busy bag for children to play with on car rides or while waiting at a restaurant.
  • Color code the pretend play area when possible by grouping items of the same color, or asking children to color match as many items as possible.
  • Clip cards provide fine motor skill development while working on colors.
  • Incorporate colors into virtually any preschool theme by simply pointing out colors, naming them, labeling them, and talking about them!
