If your kids are learning their colors you’ll find these color matching wheels helpful. They work well with preschoolers, giving them fine motor practice as they manipulate the wheels to match the hearts, animals and color words. And Kindergarteners can practice reading the words by sounding out the beginning letters.

Color Matching Wheels
- Color: All pictures and words are in color.
- Color: The pictures are in color but the words are black. This is to encourage children to look at the color words to determine what they say. Even sounding out the first letter and looking at the length of the word can give kids the clues they need to take a guess!
- Black and white: All pictures have black outlines and the words are fully black.
- Black and white: All pictures AND words have black outlines. This way, children can color the words correctly to give them a clue as to what the word says when they engage in the activity.
