With older preschoolers, for whom this activity is intended, help them notice that color names are written on Crayola® markers and crayons. Where else can they find color names in print?
Choose your favorite colors of Crayola® Washable Markers.
Measure recycled file folders or poster board in rectangles, about 3 by 6 inches. Mark lines with Crayola® Colored Pencils. Make one rectangle for each marker. Cut with Crayola® Scissors.
Find color names on the markers. Write one color name on each paper rectangle, using the marker of that color. Put your name on the back of the card.
Match your color words with the colors of things you see indoors and outside.
