Colors Preschool Activities, Lessons, and Worksheets

Colors and Colours Activities for Preschool

Colors activities, lessons, and games for preschool. What would our world be without color? Just think--there would no more blue skies, blue blueberries, or blue bluebirds. There would be no more green trees or green grass. And what about colors of sunrises and sunsets? And of all the flowers? And . . . Well, luckily, we don't have to worry about that, but it's nice to think about the importance of color in our lives. So we have created a rainbow of color-related fun activities, games, worksheets, crafts, and printables to help your child learn about the colors that surround him or her. Below you'll find a sampling of our resources for the color green.

Where is red? (Repeat with other hand.)
Here I am,  (Wave one hand.)
Here I am. (Wave other hand.)
