Are you looking for a quick and easy way to have little ones practice colors? Don’t miss this adorable cat color matching fun pack!
This set of color matching activities is a great way to teach colors while building early learning skills with your toddlers and preschoolers.
Cat Color Matching Fun
These activities are a great way to have kids strengthen visual discrimination and fine motor skills while learning colors. And, the adorable cat graphics are sure to engage preschoolers.
You can add this color-matching activity pack to your pet theme. Add these activities to your math centers, or create busy bags with them.
What skills are covered?
First of all, these activities focus on colors. The colors featured are red, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. There are various shades of green, blue, and pink included which offers a challenge for older preschoolers.
You can use these activities to work on color recognition. Ask your child to find a pink cat or a blue ball of yarn.
These activities are designed more to work on visual discrimination skills. Kids will match balls of yarn to cats wearing the same colored sweater.
Memory skills are developed with the memory matching game. And, fine motor skills are strengthened when children use clothespins or paper clips to identify matches on the clip cards.
What’s included in this pack?
This printable pack contains four cat-themed color activities that are a perfect fit for your preschoolers.
There are two sets of color matching clip cards. One set of clip cards has children matching cats wearing sweaters to the matching ball of yarn while the other set has kids matching the yarn to the cat/sweater.
I prefer to print these cards on cardstock and laminate for durability. You can add a colored dot on the back of each card to make them self-checking.
There is a memory matching game. Print and laminate these pages, and cut apart the cards. Turn the cards facedown. Then, have kids flip over two cards at a time to find the matches (yarn to sweater). If the kids find a match, they keep the pair and go again. If they can’t make a match, their turn ends.
This is a great activity for building visual discrimination skills. There are two shades of green, two shades of pink, and two shades of blue in this game. For younger preschoolers, just include one of each. Challenge older students with both.
Finally, there are eleven color matching puzzles. Print these puzzles on cardstock, laminate them, and cut them apart. Have kids match the puzzle pieces.
You can make this a self-checking activity by putting stickers on the back of each puzzle.
