Playing With Colors

An interactive game to build the basic skill of color recognition.

Entering preschool or kindergarten with some knowledge of basic concepts such as colors (or shapes or sizes) gives children a leg up on learning! Help children play the game, create, and save their art. You might also:

  • Go on a “rainbow hunt”! Invite children to find things in a certain color around them. How many can they find?  
  • Name as many colors as you can around you. Help expand children’s vocabulary by using more words beyond the basic six, such as light blue, maroon, or turquoise 
  • Use paper to keep drawing, perhaps using the colors you’ve been using on the screen.
