Color Activities For Kids
Hands On Learning Through Play
Simple Ideas For Everyday Learning
Exploring colors with kids is so much fun and these color activities are perfect for anytime play! Learning names of colors, sorting colors, mixing colors, creating with colors is all a part of early learning play. I love to share the same concept in many different ways so my son has an opportunity to practice new skills and maintain already mastered skills and concepts. Color mixing is always lots of fun once you move past basic color recognition! Check out all the fun color activities we have come up with to play and learn with colors. Many of the color activities include additional learning ideas with mathematics, science and fine motor skills! Click on all photos for set up instructions!

Color Sensory Play
Any sensory bin that offers up a visual bounty of colors is awesome for learning. Talk with your child about the colors he or she sees. Describe them; sort them; play with them!
