We have been a little remiss on the site, and not done too much to help kids with learning colors. But no more! We have a fabulous colour matching game for them this week, using these rather marvellous clowns.
Learning colors is something that toddlers and pre-schoolers love to do, and it’s critical for them to have a good grasp before they go to school. Colour matching is a great way of encouraging this skill with your kids at home. This is also a lovely game to have at any nursery or pre-school to do with the kids. It is bound to make learning colors so much for fun.
It is a really simple idea, and we have outlined on the first color matching sheet, but just in case:
- Print out the clowns and their hats on card – for extra durability, why not laminate them? It is likely that the kids will be handling them a lot, so lets keep them for as long as we can
- Cut out the hats and the clowns, and
- Match the hats with the color of each of the clowns pants. *simple but effective*
We have the following colours for the kids to learn:
- Red, and
Let’s start small and build from there. The clowns are really engaging in these cut outs, so why not get the kids to color their own version too?
