Coloring Games for Kids
“When you have fun then you’re interested in learning.” – Magnus Carlsen
Learning is achieved easily when kids are having fun. Aside from learning the alphabet, we teach our toddlers how to count and identify colors. Incorporating different color games will make learning colors easy and enjoyable. We’ve listed different exciting color games that your children will truly love.
Guess the Color
This game should be done in pairs. The first player will pick the color from a box while the other one will guess the color selected. The guesser will cite examples that could help her/him guess the right color. On the other hand, the one who picked the color can answer with Yes, No, Maybe only. He/she is not entitled to give clues. Giving clues aside from the allowable words will be penalized with additional 3 seconds on their time.
