This printable is the base of the game. There are a few different ways that we have played, but they all center around the printable.

The printable is broken down into 6 squares, one for each of the basic rainbow colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple. This base can be used to play multiple different games.

These games are also great for strengthening gross motor skills. Children will be running or quickly moving through the house and back to the mat in order to win. You could even ask them to do different movements as they move to find the object.

I would suggest laminating this mat so that you can use it over and over. When writing is necessary, you can use a dry erase marker.

  • Race To Find
    If you have multiple children, they can race to find the next color that you call. They know the 6 colors, but they don’t know what you are going to call. When you call the color they must race to find an object of that color and bring it back. You can check off that color or write the winner’s name in the box.
  • Simon Says Find…
    Instead of asking the kids to find the objects from around the house or classroom, have objects set up for them around the room. When you call out the color, you’ll then give them a spin around until you get to the blue block, Skip to the green ball, etc.
    This is a fantastic gross motor activity! 
  • Get Outside:
    You can hand them the scavenger hunt printable and have them mark off in tally marks how many of each color they can find in the great outdoors. This can also be done in the car. 

This is super simple and a great way to practice colors while strengthening gross motor skills. Kids will be giddy and laughing as they practice.
