Color Identification STEM Game for Preschool

Save this idea for later!

Bo is starting preschool this fall, and at the age of 3 1/2, she doesn’t know much of what preschoolers are “supposed” to know.

This doesn’t bother me, since we’re following along with the Finnish model of school, but she has shown interest in learning a few things, like her colors. This week, I make this printable preschool ice cream game to help her learn color identification.

Add this game into your thematic units or STEM activities for ice cream!

Roll the die. Whatever color is rolled, move your game piece to the next ice cream cup holding that color of ice cream. Play continues until someone reaches the finish line and the ice cream cart!

You cannot move to the finish line unless you roll the color of the very last ice cream cone (red). The first person to the cart wins. This was a fun way to teach colors to toddlers.

Bo wanted to play the ice cream color game over and over.
