Learning Colors Games: Free Printable

Hi friends!

I have a fun free game for you today. Actually it's 3 games.

If you have a child at home, or if you teach pre-K to Grade 1 and some or all of your kids are still struggling with color recognition, then you need to download these fun games I made.

All they require is a bit of cutting, folding and taping. And if you'd like the game board and playing cards to last longer then you'll probably want to laminate them, but of course it's not necessary.

I've used my rainbow monsters clip art to make the games.

First up is the Memory Game (or some people call it Concentration).

For this game you'll need to print out double copies of each card.


My granddaughter, Ivy, is only 3 so when we played Memory we only used 12 cards with 6 different colors. I didn't want to overwhelm her!

Every time we turned over a card we named the color. If they were a match we kept them; if they weren't then we turned them over and left them. (Directions are in the pdf download at the end of the post).

Ivy liked the Memory Game a lot and we played many different versions.

The second game is a board game that we played with chocolate chips and a star die. As you can imagine this one was a BIG hit!

To play, we used Lego or Lego man markers and put some chocolate chips in the middle of the board. We rolled the star die and moved that many spaces. When we landed on a color monster we had to say the name of the color out loud. And every time we passed the start we got to take 2 chocolate chips and eat them!

This game is great not only for color recognition, but also for learning to count objects and learning to hop around the game board (matching the count with the hop).

For the third game Ivy and I just placed all 24 color cards (we doubled up on all the colors) face up on the floor.

We rolled both color dice (you can see them below), named the colors we rolled and then picked up the matching cards.

Eventually it reached a point where you couldn't always pick up two cards. Depending on how many cards had already been taken you could sometimes only pick up one card and sometimes none!

We just kept rolling and naming colors until they were all picked up. If you wanted a winner it would be the person with the most cards, but given that Ivy is just 3 we didn't worry about that. We just had fun playing the game.

As simple and easy as this game is Ivy loved it, too! In fact, all 3 games were a big hit with her :)
