Farbensuche – Color Search

Now that the holidays are behind us and the New Year has begun, it’s time to get back to business! The business of learning, speaking, and practicing German!

I’m preparing a lesson on colors for the preschoolers. As I was doing so, I came across a fun activity I created a couple of years ago. It’s a color search for when you’re out and about. A good activity to keep a little one engaged, so you might actually get a bit of shopping done! Of course, your little one will need some help.

Just print out the Farbensuche page (below) – preferably on cardstock – and head off to the store! As your little one sees objects in each color he or she can check them off the list!

If you’d like to add another step, you can take pictures of the objects, too. Bring a set of colors – paint chips from the hardware store work great for this, especially the extra large ones! Write the names of the colors on the paint chips in big letters. When you take the picture of the object, place the color swatch next to the object. Print out the pictures when you get home and put them in a little album. Poof! You have your very own color book!
