Color sorting and learning color names is one of the first skills we teach our toddlers. It was one of the first activities I created for my oldest way back when he was my only child.
I loved being able to teach him at home. He thought we were spending quality time together, playing a game. We were! We were color sorting and learning color names…and more too.
This color dot sticker sorting activity is a great one for older toddlers or as a preschool learning activity as you prepare your child for kindergarten.
Color Dot Sticker Sorting Activity for Preschool
Preschool is my favorite age group.
Truly even after teaching my kids at home I remember so many fun ideas from when they were young. This color sorting and learning activity for preschool is one that each of my kids did at home. We even did it with each child multiple times.
You only need two items to do this color sorting and learning activity. It is an easy one to create in minutes.
White paper (construction paper or printer paper work great)
4-color stickers (I used these stickers from Amazon)
4 markers (to match the stickers)
How to create the activity in about 1 second. No kidding!
Draw two lines on the white paper to create 4 sections. In each section label 1 color by writing the color name in that color marker.
This helps preschool children begin to pre-read by associating a color with the color words.
Then take out one sheet of dot stickers. Your child then places the stickers in each section that match that color. You can have them work through as many sticker sheets as they like or save some for another time.
We even went a step further and counted the stickers in each section. It was helpful counting practice for preschool age kids.
I made the outline of each number with dots and my son traced them since he was not writing numbers on his own yet.
It takes seconds, to create this simple color sorting and learning activity for preschool. It is a perfect idea to keep handy when you are feeding a baby and need a quick learning activity for their older sibling.
