Make a color collage for learning colors

Super Simple Color Collage

This is a super simple color collage for learning colors. It’s a great introduction for colors because its great for kids that are just beginning to recognize that there are different colors and this is all about matching the colors and not putting labels on it. George, however, already knows most of his colors, so […]

Number Match Slap with Playing Cards
