Colors! - preschool books and activities

Here are a few of our favorite preschool color books, crafts, and activities. Enjoy!


A Color of His Own - Leo Lionni
The Crayon Box that Talks - Shane DeRolf
Dog's Colorful Day - Emma Dodd
Bear Sees Colors -


Rainbow Roller - Mama May I
-a colorful rainbow vibe to turn any monotonous time into play-and-explore-color time. Add as extra dimension to color manipulatives or use as a hide and seek game while waiting. Fun for all ages! Link here: http://www.mamamayishop.com/products/rainbow-roller


Draw a picture of Dog and laminate. Have little ones add colored spots with markers while you read the book then wipe clean when Dog takes a bath. This is a great tool for story-retellings to work on comprehension skills as well! ( the photo of this project I used came from here but it's a different activity than what I usually do http://veronastorytime.com/tag/messy/ ).




Color Collage - this is such a beautiful result from a simple color-explore. I set out a box of rains in colored object. We call it our treasure box. Little ones search for colored object to fill their rainbow collage color-study. We talk about the order of colors and I fold the extra long paper into 6 equal sections. All ages love this and they are so beautiful to look at when they are done!



Color Book - I love this idea by Fun A Day! using step stacking colors to see the whole rainbow and act as tabs to find certain color studies in a BOOK. I love making books. And this one reminds me of a book I made in fabric after being inspired by Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert ! Another fun color read!
