But, we’ll get into preschool and a more advanced approach they can try in a bit.
For now, let’s talk about toddlers and colors. 🙂
Color Matching Games for Toddlers
Toddlers can practice on their pincer grasp skills by picking up a toy and placing it on the tape line.
That is if they are using their index finger and thumb only.
Even if they use their whole hand, placing it onto the tape line will also allow for the benefit of fine motor skills!
What an amazing game for learning about colors while receiving benefits!
Some fun colour matching activities can be:
Matching the colorful learning toys to the correct tape like we did.
Creating patterns by placing two of each colored tape and learning about colors in a skipping way.
Coloring in different colored circles onto the tape as mentioned above this post and matching them with pom poms.

When do toddlers learn colors?
Toddlers can learn colors all around them each and everyday!
When you take a trip to the grocery store, talk about the colors you see!
Play toddler color games by talking about how red that tomato sauce container looks.
Toddlers learn in an incredibly quick manner and absorb all things around them like a sponge.
If they’re not communicating it, you better believe they’re thinking about it and learning about it in every instance they come across it.
Toddler color games
Toddlers can learn about colors by adding different colored pieces of tape onto a table as we did.
Then, take colorful pom poms or large colorful buttons and match them onto the correct colored tape.
As they match them, name the color name out loud.
Matching, playing and learning incorporated into one will allow for quick and effective learning about colors.
Color games for preschoolers
Are you looking for color games for preschoolers?
There are many fun color games you can try with preschoolers.
Teaching colors isn’t very hard and can be brought forth with items you probably already own.
For example, use playdough!
Playdough comes in all different colors.
You can even make play dough yourself at home
For a fun and easy homemade playdough, check one of our recipes here!
Lay a playdough of different colors out on the table.
Then as your preschooler plays with one color, talk about that color with them.
Playing while learning is a very effective way to learn rather quickly.
Perhaps you can even try a fun color matching game as mentioned above by creating 2 of each colored play dough ball and matching them or squishing the two that match.
For example, if you are learning about blue color activities for preschool, create many different blue balls of play dough and pinch them down while calling out their color name!
Shape and colour activities for preschool can also be incorporated.
I used our shape color buttons to not only match the colors onto the tape.
But, you can talk about the different shaped buttons as well!
Teaching Colours Activities doesn’t have to be hard.
You can teach about colors by using safe and kid friendly items all around you 🙂
I hope these DIY preschool activities and toddler activities for learning about colors were all very helpful!
