Printable Color Activities
Here’s how we learned about fall colors through observation, sensory exploration, and a color sorting activity using a printable color activities page that you can download for free. Want to download the printable for yourself? Then keep reading….
One of the best things about autumn – besides picking apples for homemade pies – is taking walks in the fresh fall air and noticing the green leaves turning vibrant hues of yellow, orange, and red. Going for a nature walk is the perfect opportunity to teach your toddler to identify fall colors.
On our discovery of fall colors, we began by simply observing the colors of the maple tree leaves outside our kitchen window.
I asked my toddler to name the colors he saw. If he didn’t know the color or said the wrong color, I told him the correct name.
To reinforce our learning, after he named a color, I followed up with a question like this:
- Can you name something else that is red?
- Where have you seen something orange?
- Is your toy truck yellow?
- Do we have anything brown in our house?
For our second phase of learning, we went for a walk and collected leaves of various colors. Remember to bring a bag with you because your little one will be sure to collect more than his little arms can carry!
Even if you don’t have time to head outside and go for a nature walk, you can still observe and collect leaves during your daily routine – like we’re doing here sitting outside at Starbucks.
As a final step in our learning discovery, we sorted the leaves that we collected into piles of different colors.
Tip: You could use contact paper or glue to stick down your real leaves into color sorted piles or make a mixed color fall-inspired collage.
We continued our color sorting activity using foam leaf stickers and this Fall Color Sorting Chart.
