Color worksheets activity for kids

We have a treat for you today – some color worksheets for a fabulous kids activity with clothes, that helps kids to recognise colors, and the activity incorporates writing and comprehension too. This is therefore a good activity to work through with either pre-schoolers (reading the questions to them), primary, or older primary children, with you adapting the activity depending on the children’s abilities.

Color worksheets: How to use them

As with all our sheets, we have given you a sneak preview of some of them, so you can see what you are getting before you download them for your child or classroom.

The pack has five pages, including a cover page including a rather gorgeous example of one of our favourites, black dresses, and a pile of T-shirts. The following page provides details of how to carry out the activity, and what the activity.

Children have a series of questions to answer about three friends in the pack, who are all doing different activities; one is singing, another getting dressed, and another doing the washing.

All the questions are focused on the colors of the clothes that the children are wearing, to help with color recognition, matching, reading comprehension, and visual perception.

Questions include:

  • What color is the dress?
  • What color are the clothes in the folded washing pile?
  • The shorts the boy is putting on are ________.
  • The girl doing the washing has _____ hairbands.
  • The bow on the dress is a light _____.
  • Name two colors for the tops in the washing basket,
  • What is YOUR favorite color?

The questions mainly talk about the people within the pack, but there is one open ended question about children’s favourite colors, and the last page invites the children to draw a picture of a hat that one of the children might like to wear with their current outfit; the singer in the black dress.

This final activity is a great way to get the kids using their imaginations, and creative skills alongside literacy, and matching with the colors and questions earlier in the pack.

You can, of course, add in some of your own questions to the activity as well, depending on what you would like to focus on for the children’s learning. Additional ideas might be around some of the other colors that can be seen within the pictures, or perhaps even you can use the pictures as further writing prompts, to get the kids imaginations really working hard.

What about some of these ideas?

  • Why do you think the girl is all dressed up for her singing?
  • What is the story behind the little boy getting dressed?
  • The boy looks a little rushed – what do you think might be happening to him?
  • Do you ever help with the washing and chores in your house? What do you do? How does helping out make you feel?

Believe it or not, just a few simple pictures, can create a wealth of possibilities for kids imaginations with a little encouragement.
