I designed two different versions of the charts. Each one has clip art along with color words written in the correct color.
Both are perfect to use your classroom or homeschooling space! Young children in preschool and kindergarten can identify common colors using these printables.
My Color Chart
A fun way for your young child to reinforce their colors is to let them customize their own color chart! Make sure to check out the activity ideas below for fun games and activities using these printables.
Pair the black and white version of the fruits and vegetables with the full color version. Kids can color in the color name along with the clip art.
Not only are these great reference charts that you can hang up on the wall or on a fridge, you can use them for interactive activities. Young learners love finding and identifying different colors around the house, classroom, or even outside.
All of these activities are a great way to practice fine motor skills, color recognition, and the names of the colors. Perfect for preschool and kindergarten aged kids.
Classifying and Mixing Colors
- Primary Colors and Secondary Colors
- The Color Wheel
- Color Mixing
You can prompt your child to point out the primary and secondary colors. Pair the chart with a color wheel to show the colors in order.
Bring out the painting supplies and practice making your own colors.
Your child can create the different colors on the chart then paint a swatch on the blank version of the my color chart.
Go on a Color Scavenger Hunt
Head outside and hunt for different items of each color. It would be fun to bring along a basket to collect samples or even take pictures with a camera.
I love how you can do a color scavenger hunt each season and find new items!
Not able to head outside? Instead look for different colored items within your home or classroom space. Kids love finding and spotting hidden colors.
Try Colorful Fruits and Vegetables
Don't just learn about different colored foods, try out a few together. Heading to a local farmers market is a great place to find different colored foods.
From rainbow carrots to purple turnips, kids love seeing different colored fruits and vegetables.
If you have a garden space, you can even try growing a few different colorful varieties in your own yard! We love growing rainbow carrots because they are easy to grow and fun to pick.
Cut and Paste
Cut out different items then glue them down into the correct color spot. I love keeping old magazines on hand or even sales flyers for cut and paste activities.
You can point out the different colors found within each image then glue them down into the correct category on the worksheet.
Another idea is to cut up small pieces of paper then have them glue them down under the correct color word.
