Learning colours: Clown colour matching game

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.

We have a great game to help kids with learning colours - a clown colour matching game. Why not pop over and download now - it's free! #colours #colors #learningcolors #learningcolours #learning #nursery #preschool #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:

  • Blue,
  • Green,
  • Orange,
  • Purple,
  • Red, and
  • Yellow.

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?

If you are looking for some fun board games to play to help with color matching, do check out Red Dog, Blue Dog (UK affiliate link) from Orchard Toys. This is aimed at 2-5 year olds, and is the perfect game to teach basic colours alongside this freebie. Our kids LOVED it.

They are really good. I agree that laminating them will make them last longer
