Ah! Summer is almost over, and my kids head back to school soon. So I wanted to share another fun activity for summer that really can be done year-round, too. I love super simple, interactive games that I can make for the kids with only things found around the house. This color scavenger hunt game is both fun and educational, so today, we're showing you have to make it…

Depending on how old your kids are, you can change up the rules and tailor the game to fit the skills they're trying to learn! If they're learning colors and matching, turn it into a sorting game by collecting items around the house in several different colors and then let your child sort through the items to place and match on the sheet. If they're a little older, turn it into a scavenger hunt by either collecting items ahead of time and hiding them throughout the home for them to find, OR let your kids scout the house on their own to find items that match the colors on the page.

Here's how…
1. If using craft paper or paint swatches, cut out a square of the color. You could also use crayons or markers and color in boxes of various colors.
2. Use double-sided tape to adhere to your paper. 
3. Write the name of each color under the square. If your kids are of writing age, they can make this themselves or help you with it!

  1. Even my 22 month old can play, right now he’s obsessed with pointing out anything that’s orange and he’s right 90-95% of the time. It’s like he woke up one morning counting, saying his alphabet, and naming all the colors. I love those little sponges. Big sis might like it too, she’s really into colors too. She complains that we don’t have the right crayons at home and wouldn’t leave daycare once because they have magenta and we don’t.
