By Bev Long and Judith Mason — Educational Consultants

Two games to help broaden children’s vocabulary in relation to colour. Players ‘apply’ for jobs in a paint factory, and help sort and name paint shades.

The games can be played individually or in small groups.


Shared work

  • Copy, enlarge and cut out some of the colour names on your colour charts and try to match to the colours.
  • Talk about the names and why they are more creative than the basic colour names of blue, green, etc.
  • Share the children’s experiences of decorating at home, and ask if they have ever been involved in the process of choosing colours.
