Sand Castle Preschool

This activity is perfect for young kids to practice color matching skills (in fact it is great for practicing visual discrimination, a skill needed for reading and math too). It also develops hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills! For this sand castle activity – preschoolers, kindergartners, toddlers, and first grade students will match the colored flag with the tp roll castle featuring the same color. This summer activities for kindergarten is such a fun color activity for kids!

Colour matching activities

What you need:
  • cardboard rolls
  • colored craft sticks
  • corresponding colors of craft foam/cardboard for the flags
  • corresponding color paint/markers
  • glue/glue dots/glue gun

I used 6 colors and one flag for each “sandcastle”, but you can add as many flags and colors you like! Also, you do not need to have the same size sandcastles; you can change it up for variety. Cut the cardboard rolls so that they resemble sandcastles. Paint or draw a colored mark on each sandcastles. Cut the triangles for the flags and then attach it to the craft sticks. That is it! Now it is time to play and learn! Ask you child/student to add the correct color flag to the corresponding color sandcastle.

This process in itself is a lot of fun for kids!
