Our Favorite Game

I made this color game a few weeks ago and my class loves it! I call it "Color Sorting". It is so simple to make and everyone wants to play with it. The base is .an old carton from our crayon box.


I cut out colored paper and glued it to the bottom.


Next a gathered all the different colored bottle caps I could find.



And I let the children sort!


As the year progresses I will change out the paper in the bottom. First I will have an all white background with just the words of the colors (red, blue, orange, etc.). Next, I will swap it out for the Spanish version. Simple, cheap and lots of fun! What more could you ask for???

  3. I will add the spanish words later then by the end of the year there won't be any colored rectangles, just the words of the color.
