Rainbow Cards Coloring Game:

The cards have the same images as is in the online story: red cap, orange pumpkin, green beans, yellow duck, blue ball and purple lollipop.

Each image is in color and black & white - keep these images together when cutting the cards.

Print the cards preferably in card stock or white construction paper.

Game procedure:

  1. Show the color image side first, ask what color and what is the name of the object.
  2. Turn the cards so only black & white image shows. Ask child what color should the image be - example: what color was the duck?

Part 2 of activity:

Coloring: Encourage child to color the images to match the one next to it

Ideas for using cards:

Match game:
Cut the matching images and play a game of match. Turn all of the cards face down. Turn over 2 cards. If you turn over a picture card and it is the correct color card, you have a match. Take these cards away. Turn 2 of the remaining cards over. If they are not a match turn back facedown, and try again until all matches have been made.

Mini-book:
Staple on the upper left corner placing the primary color first, follwed by secondary colors.

Older preschoolers (Ages 4+ and older), and kindergarten level can be introduced to the companion color word worksheets. There is a color version and coloring version.
