Color Recognition Activity

Hi, this is Patrice Badami, with Acorn to tree crafting with Patrice and I wanted to share with you this really great color recognition activity that I made for my daughter. So I made the shape of a popsicle, and I made it in all different colors. That’s what I did here. Then on the back, actually before I put the popsicle stick here on the back, and I use big ones, so it’s easy to grab. I laminated these so that for durability. Then I put on the popsicle stick and I used a glue gun so that it was really strong. And again, whenever you use a glue gun, take it to put the glue on a piece of paper and use a popsicle stick to apply. Then I made little donuts and I cut the doughnuts out and then I put glitter all over the donuts. I don’t know if you can see that. If you could see the glitter here, just because I liked the glitter pads like the glitter pen. Then I laminated these. And I made them the same color to match the popsicles. And then I said well, you know what, let’s take it a step further and make cupcakes too. So I made some cupcakes and again, I highlighted it with the glitter. Then I laminated it so that I had this these these together. Then I made a cube with the different colors like this. So that we can play a game where I threw all of these things on the floor and I would throw it I’d say get everything that’s green, get everything that’s purple. Then another way we played was we put these down and I had her run around and match all the cupcakes to it and match all the doughnuts to it. So it’s just so much fun. Great idea for color recognition following directions, a fun activity when it’s raining outside to have them run around. And you can take it a step further by making a cube with the words for the colors. So that’s another way you can bring it up and make it a more interactive game for when they’re a little bit older.
