3 Simple Color Recognition Activities

1. Straw Grouping
Simply use some type of colored plastic or paper straws 
and have child sort and organize based on color. 

2. Candy Sorting 
You can use any type of colored candies (m&m's, skittles, etc.), provide bowls 
(colored ones are great!) and have child sort candy by color into the matching bowl

3. Color Scavenger Hunt
Place color flash cards (you can make your own with index cards and crayons/markers) 
on table and have child find household items/toys to match the color/flash cards. 

Thanks for stopping by on Teachable Tuesday! Please leave a comment & share :)


  1. Great color activities! I love the color Scavenger hunt the best. Thanks for sharing. Hope to see you at True Aim!

  2. Wonderful activities, some of the simpler ideas are the most fun for kids, and I often forget them completely trying to come up with "pin-able" ideas. Needless to say I am pinning this one to remember that easy is just as good and fun!


  3. Thanks for sharing:) So glad to have found you! I pinned it too...my favorite idea was the scavenger hunt ...

    1. That is my favorite too! We use scavenger hunts for everything (abc's, shapes, numbers, words, etc.). Have a blessed day!
