color scavenger hunt

Pin It
we're goin' on a cOLoR huNT...

we're gonna catch a r A i n B O w !

i used to do this with just colored paper when i taught preschool 2 centers ago. 
i was reminded of the idea at a site that is such a gReAT rEsOUrcE for early
childhood projects. 
at the artful parent, jean used colored buckets to have her preschooler search for corresponding items in their house.  here's the link to her post.
what better way for kiddos to practice their early math skills of
soRTinG and cLaSSifiCAtioN!

for storage purposes, i used gift bags with labels stuck on so they would store easily.




because he's 2, i had Bear choose one bag at a time. i found the order he chose them in to be interesting. with each bag came a color hunt from room to room looking for items that both matched and would fit in the bags. 
((a great two-fer-one activity... identifying items by color and size.)) 




after Bear had filled each bag, he set them on the bench at our dining room table.  then we went through each one to see what he found.
