Learning colors is such a fun part of preschool days! Besides encounters in every day life, there are many hands-on activities to learn colors.
Sometimes, it’s also fun to spice up learning with a colorful printable.

Color Recognition Printable Packet
Today’s Preschool Packet includes a 9-page set of color recognition printables. Each page is designed to reinforce learning one specific color by your child circling the correct items.
Now would be a great time to purchase a few of the $0.10 3-prong folders that are on sale during the back-to-school rush.
Print each of the pages and slide them into page protectors. Then insert them into a couple of folders.
Let your little ones use them over and over with a dry erase marker and only print once!
Favorite Resources to Learn About Colors
Since I’m now on my 4th preschooler, we have certainly gone through many coloring resources! Here are a few of our favorites.
Melissa & Doug Jumbo Animal Coloring Pad – We love the variety of animals and the pictures are just the right size for my young artists.
When my older girls (5 and 7) use these pictures, the dazzle them up with glitter glue, sequins, or any other crafty supply we have on hand.
1000 Things to Color – We use this as a during-school-only coloring book, so it stays fresh!
Most of the pictures have prompts, which do require help from me, but my girls love this book!
Big Book of Colors – What a NEAT book!
This book is excellent for kiddos, ages 2 and up. Use it to introduce colors to your youngest learners and use the color wheel to show your older preschoolers how colors mix when combined with others.
A favorite of ours!
Animal Counters – We use animal counters in a variety of ways, and learning colors is top on that list.
You can read about all the many ways we use counters in our homeschool.
