  1. Playdough color mixing. It doesn’t get much better than this! Homemade playdough + our FREE color guide = endless fun and learning.  playdough color mixing the art kit 
  2. Pantone Colors book. This is a really fun book that shows different Pantone colors for each hue.
  3. Fizzy tablets. Our kids LOVE these! We love using them with our homemade volcanoes to see what color will erupt or what color we can make by combining two tablets together. Orange Volcanoes Science Experiment for Kids Using Simple Ingredients - Perfect STEAM Project
  4. Bees sorting. We love this toy so much, we bought a second set! They’re great for sorting, stacking, and working on fine-motor skills. We also love sorting muffins.
  5. Rainbow blocks. These will instantly cheer up any space (we love playing with them on a shelf near a window where the sun can illuminate them). The kids love pressing their faces up into these and looking around to see the room in a different color.
  6. Make your own color wheel from rocks. Frugal, educational, and fun. This is such a fun and hands-on way to learn about color relationships. color-wheel-rocks-the-art-kit-3-1024x768
  7. LEGO Duplo color sorting with washi tape. Another fun activity for kids using items you likely already own. Definitely a fun activity for the little ones!
  8. Paint your own color wheel. If your little one enjoys mixing paint colors, they will love this art activity. They’ll learn about making their own colors while playing – a win win!
  9. Fish puzzle. This has been one of our absolute favorite puzzles. Great for younger children!
  10. Color activity sheet. Another fun color activity sheet for kids that will leave them super knowledgeable about color.
