Color Tracing Worksheets
Each worksheet has common colors written in a dot font on a set of lines. Next to the color word are two images that your child can color to match the word.
On the first worksheet you can color and write: red for apple and a rose, orange for a marigold and a carrot, pink for watermelon and a tulip, and yellow for a lemon and a daffodil.
Your young child can color and write green for grass and peas, blue for forget me knot flowers and water, and purple for violets and grapes on the worksheet below!
The last worksheet in the set includes the words black for a cow and the night sky, brown for soil and a mushroom, white for a daisy and a mushroom, and grey for a storm cloud and a stack of rocks!
- Break up the Activity - practicing fine motor skills like writing and coloring takes can be tiring for young kids. A great idea is to focus on one color word at a time. It would be fun to focus on one color a day or even one color each week!
- Go on a Color Hunt - make it an interactive activity by going on a color hunt together. Look outside or around your house to see what other objects you can find in each color.
- Color Charts - use a printable color chart as a reference sheet while doing these activity pages. Great as a visual clue for children who are learning color words!
