Color Cards

Materials

  • Construction paper
  • Black marker
  • Scissors
  • Clear contact paper

Directions

  1. Make up two sets of cards from construction paper.
  2. Start with only a few colors, working your way up to the nine basic colors (red, green, blue, brown, yellow, orange, purple, black, and white).
  3. If you like, write the names of each color on the card.
  4. Cover the cards with clear contact paper.
  5. Spread the cards out on a table and begin by picking up one of the cards and saying, "I have a red card. Can you hand me the other red card?"
  6. After a while, your child will enjoy matching the cards all by herself.
  7. Store the cards in a small Ziploc bag when not in use.
