Color Matching Challenge
First, set our crayons or colored pencils at the table, and give each child a piece of blank white paper. Next, have them take 6 to 12 colors (depending on your age group), and scribble blobs onto the paper using each color, similar to paint swatches at a paint store.
Once every child have their color swatches complete, play a game to have them search around for items that closely match their colors. It’s best if you can position a teacher outside so that kids can go back and forth between the classroom and the outdoor area searching for a match. Once they find something that closely matches that color, have them write what it is next to the color swatch or have a teacher write it if your working with younger kids.
You can make it fun by turning it into a race, seeing who can collect all their colors first, second, third, and so on, almost like a game of black-out. Or you might give kids a special treat for each item they can find that matches.
