Colour Practicing

Here are some Colour Activities we have completed to reinforced colour names and sorting.

Cutting different coloured squares, I glued down the first ones in rainbow order, on a line-drawn paper.

Butterfly sorted the colours and glued them within it's right colour lane, also reinforcing graphing and charting skills.

Sorting coloured pom poms.

I set up this paper with a pile of coloured stickers...

...Butterfly sorted the stickers in it's right colour box.

 Using this Colour Grid printable with the colour words on it, Butterfly glued coloured paper squares again in line order, using sorting and charting.

I drew a rainbow and gave Butterfly coloured hole reinforcement stickers, she matched the circles to the right colour on the rainbow.

With a jar from the recycling bin, I punched holes in the lid and used coloured hole reinforcement stickers to label each hole a colour.  I cut up the same colour in pipe cleaners and straws.

Butterfly colour-matched the sticks to the right hole, poking them through in the jar for some great fine motor skills.  She did this activity more when she was a toddler, and even though it's easy for her now, she still enjoys it.

We make them into file folder games that Butterfly can revisit and practice over and over again.
