The color game in preschool

in Games, Shapes and Colors, The Color Game, The Value of Play

This is a little game we made for our preschoolers to have fun working on color recognition…

First we made a little cube and put a different color on each side – red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and purple. Then we cut out 6 large circles from construction paper and laminated them…

The object of the game was to roll the color cube and then stand on the color of circle that matches the color facing up on the cube…

The children made up their own rules of the game as they played…

The objectives of the game took on different twists and turns…

The game was played on the floor and on the table…

All kinds of accessories were added to the game…

This would be a good example of an “open ended” game!

Great – almost like twister for kids but educational!

Great idea. I have been wanting to find new ideas to help some of my little ones with color recognition. I have looked at your facebook page and website often & I can’t believe I am not already a follower. Don’t know how that happened. However, I am now following Teach Preschool and I look forward to reading more of your posts.
Take care,

I was trying to see what music is on your CD but the link isn’t working. Is there somewhere else I can look it up?
