Clipart buttons in a variety of colors

The eleven colors used are: red, brown, blue, orange, black, green, gray/grey, yellow, white, purple and pink.

<strong>• Activity 1</strong> – You can direct the children to use any color media to fill in the color words and the bubbles – paint, crayons, felt tips, pencils.

<strong>• Activity 2</strong> – Children join up the dashes and then color in. They can draw things that are usually that color, e.g. red strawberries, gray pencil, blue sky, yellow sun and so on. First elicit from the children the things that see that are usually that color. Some may say green grass. Also accept things they see in two colors such as black and white cat etc.

<strong>• Activity 3</strong> – Use IT Paint Palette on computer to create a colorful picture or simply a rainbow. Extension: Ask the more able to list the colors they have used.

</strong>• Activity 4 – Color sort.</strong> Children sort the buttons by color and glue them in the correct circles. I have included a variety of clipart buttons. You can mix a selection of buttons up for the children to sort.

<strong>• Activity 5: Hands-on activity:</strong> Alternatively, put out a selection of real buttons for children sort into color groups onto the circles and they can say how they have grouped the buttons.

I hope the little ones enjoy these activities.
