With spring just around the corner, I’m excited to share this fun flower-themed activity that is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. Be sure to add it to your spring activities for preschoolers.

Flower Color Matching Worksheet
This fun activity makes a great rainy day activity if your little ones are stuck inside. It’s also a good activity to add to your fine motor centers.
Tips for Teaching Colors:
There are so many fun ways to teach colors to preschoolers. Many of them can be naturally as you play with your little ones.
• Play I Spy. Have your little ones look for colored objects around the room.
• Point out colors as you read books with your preschoolers. With practice, they’ll be able to show you the colors they know.
• Practice color matching. Find two red items around the room. Put colored stickers in the bottom of a muffin tin, and have kids match pom poms to fill each cup.
How to Use This Color Matching Worksheet:
Download and print this worksheet. I prefer to print on cardstock for durability. Laminate the worksheet if you’d like. This will make the worksheet reusable.
Provide your child with a copy of the worksheet and playdough to match each color on the page – purple, blue, pink, red, orange, and yellow.
Have children make small playdough balls with each of the six colors. Then, have them put the playdough ball in the center of each flower.
Rolling the playdough balls and picking them up is a great way to strengthen fine motor skills.
Placing the playdough balls in the center of each flower is a great way to develop hand-eye coordination.
If you want this activity to be reusable but don’t have a laminator, you can slide the worksheet into a plastic sleeve. This will keep the playdough from sticking to the paper.
If you don’t have any playdough on hand, you can have your preschoolers use buttons, pom poms, or colored gems to fill the flowers.
