Learning to sort colors is a fun and exciting way for children of all ages to learn about color.

This set of free preschool printables is perfect for your Thanksgiving lesson plans. They are perfect for kids ages 3-5.

Thanksgiving Colors

This activity require very little prep work, so it is perfect for busy moms and homeschool co-op teachers.

Young learners will love working on color recognition, color sorting, and color words.


To prepare this activity, I suggest printing the pages on cardstock and laminating them for durability. Then, cut apart the color sorting cards.

If you’d like, you can put velcro dots on the back of each card and in each blank square on the sorting mats. Then, the cards/mats will stick together.


This worksheet pack contains eleven sorting mats and thirty-three color sorting cards.

Each sorting mat features a colored turkey and color word along with three blank squares.

Children will sort through the cards to find a Pilgrim hat, a slice of pie, and a cornucopia of the same color.


Fill your book basket with a great collection of Thanksgiving picture books. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.

If you have a hard time finding them, you can order them through my Amazon affiliate links by clicking the images below.
