Colour matching is lots of fun! Miss 3.5 is really enjoying colour matching at the moment. I have designed some printables to have some fun while working on this skill.

Loose parts that would work with these printable pages:

  • Lucite cubes

  • Grapat mandala pieces

  • Coloured buttons

  • Pom poms

  • Coloured glass gemstones

  • Coloured magnetic counters

  • Counters

  • + many other options!

There are 7 different pictures to colour match.

Here are some ideas for using the printable

colour matching activity pages for kids:

Use with Reusable Clear Letter Files from Officeworks.

I recently bought a 10 pack of A4 clear letter files to use with our printables after seeing them recommended on @mrslearningbee on Instagram.

It is easy to quickly switch out what is inside, and saves from laminating, while protecting the pages during play.

The reusable pouches work well to keep the pages safe.

Use with Lucite Cubes

I originally designed these printable pages to go with our lucite cubes. The lucite cubes match perfectly in size to the pictures. Our cubes are Bauspiel brand. There are lots of more affordable options to buy lucite cubes now.

Use with Coloured Buttons

Coloured buttons work well with the pictures too! Our buttons are from Officeworks and are great for all kinds of play and learning. They are great as an inexpensive loose part.
