Weekly Parent Guide

ACTIVITY:Color Coding

What you need:
Paper and pencil (optional)

What you do:
Tell your child: “One of us will read a color from a list. Then, we’ll go back and forth, naming all the things in nature that are that color. The person who thinks of the last thing wins the round.”

Say each color out loud. Go back and forth, naming all the things in nature that are that color. (Example: green—frog, grass, leaves, etc.)
green
yellow
orange
blue
purple
red
white
black

If you want a variation, about halfway through the colors, grab a sheet of paper and a pencil for both you and your child. Read the remaining colors aloud. Then, individually, write down as many things in nature that are that color that you can think of. Compare lists. Mark out any items that you both wrote down. Award points for each unique item that each of you thought of. Keep score and reward the winner with a treat!
