Color matching activities work on visual discrimination, logical thinking and learning new colors!
We used easter eggs to set up a simple color matching game, but what else can you use at home to do a similar activity? Try:
- Lego bricks: Pick matching pairs then separate them so your child has to connect two matching colors.
- Flower petals: Pluck a few petals off of flowers of different colors. Your child can match, then use a bit of glue to make a collage!
- Pom poms: Mix up matching sets of pom poms in one bowl. Ask your child to match them and place in pairs around the bowl.
Anything can be a matching game! After you’ve matched, ask your child, “What color is this?” to practice new vocabulary.
