What Makes This Bundle Special

Builds pre-reading skills. Helps your child practice color recognition, visual discrimination and pattern recognition, which helps them develop the skills they need to read and see the difference between letters.

Reuse them (over and over). Why use printables? Because you get to print them as many times as you want. And repurpose them into a million different activities. Ideas included.

Uses real photos. Actual photos of nature help kids process information and keep them engaged.

Vibrant colors. Colorful watercolor art keeps your little learner focused and engaged.

Hit developmental milestones. Hands-on learning activity that’s age-appropriate for preschool and early elementary kids.

Compact design. Take them in the car, to the park, in an airplane, to grandma’s house. They go everywhere!

Great motor activity. Fantastic practice to develop their fine motor skills, and I include creative ideas to use these activities in gross motor play too.

Activity Ideas

Here’s how to teach colors using color sorting games. Here are some of my favorite ideas to get you started:

Make a busy book. Add velcro dots to the color template pages, then add them to a binder. Your kiddo can match the color cards to the page. Keep it on hand when you need a quick independent activity.

Sensory bin. Hide the cards in a sensory bin to have your kiddo find them + match them to the color control card.

Card games. Create a deck of cards by printing multiple sets of cards and play card games like Go Fish, Slap It and Memory. Instructions included.

Scavenger hunt. Hide the color cards around the room, then find and match them to the control cards/page. Great indoor or outdoor game.

Relay race. Little one having trouble sitting to learn? Then get them up and moving with a relay race — running back and forth to match the colors to the control card/page.

Nature walk. Go for a nature walk and collect items then match them to the color cards.

Who These Printables Are For

Parents. If you’ve got a toddler, preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten kid and are looking for enriching activities for them instead of using screen time.

Montessori lovers. Perfect for creating hands-on activities at home or in the classroom.

Homeschool parents. Need to supplement a preschool or kindergarten curriculum? Add these to your morning basket or lesson plan.

Gift givers. If you’re looking for a special birthday gift, new parent gift, or baby shower gift that I can guarantee you no one else will be giving.

3. Laminate (optional). It’s optional but recommended to preserve color and make your pages last longer, but using cardstock only is fine too.
