Sing a Song

I Love Colors

Here is a song about all kinds of colors!
You can make up your own tune and even hand motions.

I love colors, yes I do!
Red and orange and green and blue!
I love colors, dark or bright,
Yellow, purple, black, and white!

What is red? Juicy beets!
What is brown? Chocolate treats!
What is white? A shiny moon!
What is gray? A big baboon!

What is orange? Carrot sticks!
What is yellow? Baby chicks!
What is gold? Bright goldfish!
What is black? Licorice!

What is green? Grass so high!
What is blue? The open sky!
What is purple? Eggplant shells!
What is silver? Silver bells!

Try This

Today’s colors are silver and gold.

For older children, have them count a small handful of coins. They can make rubbings of the coins by placing paper over the coins and rubbing a crayon over them. Coins are a choking hazard for children under 4. You can talk about the silver stars and sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
