Preschool Time - Color Matching

It is hard to believe Rebekah is already two. She is growing up much to fast for this mama. And like any little sister she looks up to her big sisters and wants to be just like them. This includes doing everything they do as well.

For a while now she has been asking to "do school, too". That used to mean a box of crayons and paper or the math blocks to appease her and keep her busy for a while. Lately, however, she has been wanting more. We have been working on ABC's and 123's orally, but it was becoming quite obvious that she wanted something to do with her hands as well.

It has been a few years since we have had a preschooler in the house and most of the activities I made are gone. So I was excited to find Totally Tots, an awesome blog with a bunch of creative women posting tons of activities and information for toddlers and preschoolers.

Rebekah loves ice cream. It is one of her favorite signs as well. So when I saw this file folder color matching game, I knew it would be a big hit. There are a bunch of other file folder games, so go check it out.

The object is to match the color of the ice cream on the white card to the one attached inside the file folder. Even though there are shades of blue and pink, Rebekah is doing really will. The only colors that continually confuse her are white and grey.

And of course it is always more fun to play with a big sister.
