If You Are Wearing Red
If you are wearing red, Shake your head,
If you are wearing red, Shake your head,
If you are wearing red,
Then please shake your head.
If you are wearing red, shake your head.
Blue, touch your shoe
Black, pat your back
Green, bow like a queen
Yellow, Shake like Jell-O
Brown, Turn around
Pink, give us a wink

Stringing Beads
String pony beads onto the corresponding colored pipe cleaners.

Bear Puzzle
I had this wooden bear puzzle that I found at a famer's market years ago.  It has all the colors that we have learned and T is starting to get better at puzzles.

Color Crayon File Folder Game
I printed out and put together this Color Crayon File Folder Game for T.

Too Many Balloons
Read: Too Many Balloons by Catherine Matthias

Directions: Blow up one balloon of each balloon and let the child play.

Balloon Books:
Too Many Balloons by Catherine Matthias
Little Rabbit Lost by Harry Horse
The Blue Balloon by Mick Inkpen
Emily's Balloon by Komako Sakai
Mathilda and the Orange Balloon by Randal de Seve

I tried to find a good preschool age balloon book for each color that we learned, but only found a few.  I found some more on Amazon, but the library didn't have them and I don't like to post books that we haven't actually read.  If you know of any good preschool balloon books about a specific color  balloon (that I don't have in the list above already) let me know.  Thanks!
