What Color is the Forest?

I made up a game for learning colors. You can play with kids who are just starting to learn basic colors but I think old kids might be interested in it as well. My daughter already knows colors and I wanted to show her how colorful a forest can be.

I cut out squares of different colors and glued them to a piece of cardboard. I put things that can be found in a forest next to it: leaves, a pine cone, acorn, a chestnut, blueberries, a mushroom, a flower and a few insects.

My daughter took each of the items, named it and put it on a square of a corresponding color.

We have a book "Quiet Bunny's Many Colors" by Lisa McCue that goes very well with this topic so we reread it.
