My boys have been learning colors and they want to talk about the colors of everything they see! They are also big on drawing and coloring, so of course we have a lot of broken crayon pieces around the house. I was gathering them up to throw them away when I got an idea for a fun color matching game.
This is a really easy preschool activity that helps reinforce learning colors and uses materials you probably already have at home - play dough and broken crayon pieces. Of course you can use whole crayons too, or a combination of both!
Here's the set up - I put 4 balls of different colored play dough along with an assortment of crayon pieces on our table and invited the boys to come play.
As they started sticking the crayon pieces into the play dough we talked about the colors of the dough and the colors of the crayons. I gave them some prompts like, "let's put the blue crayon into the white dough."
And "which colors are in the red dough?"
