Learn about colors with our printable color wheel game for kids. Singleplayer and multiplayer options make this a great activity for toddlers, preschoolers or even for the classroom.
Yaaay! It’s color time. If you’ve read a little bit about us here on the blog, you know that we are architects by training. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that things like colors get us super excited!
We’ve shared some awesome coloring pages in the past. Among them are also these great printable coloring pages of colors (I know, it’s a mouthful).
And today we’ve got a color game for you!
Color Wheel Game Printable
Get our color wheel game printable from our members’ library and get ready to play. The printable consists of two parts – the color wheel and playing tokens.
If only one child is playing you’ll only need one color wheel and one token page. If more children are playing, print out one copy of each for each player.
Before playing, cut out the color wheel(s) and the playing tokens. Place the tokens in a bowl or a bag.
How to play the Color Wheel Game
If only one child is playing, the goal of the game is to arrange all of the tokens on the color wheel. The child pulls the tokens out of the bag, recognizes the color and places it onto the color wheel. When all of the tokens are arranged, the game is finished.
When there are more children playing, the goal of the game is to have one token on each part of the color wheel.
The children pull out tokens out of the bag one by one and place them on the color wheel. If they pull out a color they already have, they put it back in the bag and wait until the next round to try again.
The player who is first to collect one token for each of the 6 colors, wins!
Sure, this is not a very complicated game, but it’s not meant to be. It’s perfect for toddlers and preschoolers only learning to follow game rules. So although it may seem too simple for you, your child can learn a lot by playing.
When playing don’t forget to talk about colors and what other objects of the same color they can name. If they are old enough to grasp the concept, explain the relationship between different colors on the color wheel. Talk about which colors you have to mix to get orange, for example, and so on.
