In a non-planned Touch & Feel series, these touch & feel colour cards idea is the final post. And how fabulous are they?
We have Shapes, Counting and Letters Touch and Feel cards, and now we have colours as well! These cards are great for kids from toddler age and up. My 7 year old sensory seeker still loves to feel these because it is appealing to all senses and that leads to fun learning too.
Also, get your hands on this Ebook-Colors and Shapes for more fun, frugal and hands-on activities to learn about colors and shapes!
For these colour cards you will need:
- A variety of pipecleaners
- A variety of pompoms
- A variety of craft foam shapes
- A variety of ribbons
- Strong Glue Or Glue gun and sticks
- Black Marker
- Cardboard cards (about 100x100mm, I reused a box)
First, sort your colours together(get the kids to help with this step for a lovely educational activity). Then, cut the cards from cardboard.
Plan how to place the objects before gluing it down and write down the colour name. I made our cards bilingual for my kids to learn the English together with the Afrikaans word. Glue it down when you are satisfied with the outlay.
Make all of your cards in the same manner. I made 10 colour cards with the colours I had. Some cards have more objects because I wanted to add different hues of that specific colour(like blue). You can decide how elaborate you want your cards to be.
Touching and feeling as part of the learning process is very important: the more senses a child use, the better! Feel, see and hear(say the name) and learn all the colour names.
These touch and feel cards did not cost much making it a frugal teaching tool. It also was not difficult to make so anyone can easily make this. Make a set of touch & feel colour cards today and let the learning begin!
