Day 12 of our 31 days of file folder games series is filled with tons of color! Today we’re using a printable version of one of our favorite art supplies in this paint splat file folder game to practice color words!
Now, in case you’re wondering, yes, there is another game in this series that works on color words.
Our gumball version was so much fun and since this is a concept that we’re currently working on ourselves, we went ahead and added another one for some extra practice.
Paint Splatter Color Words
If you’re looking for something bright and colorful, this game is it!
With 11 different colors to work on, it’ll keep your little ones busy for a while and they won’t even realize that they’re learning!
First things first, to make one of your own, you’ll need to gather up your supplies. You’ll need:
- A file folder
- Clear contact paper
- Velcro dots
- The printable paint splat set (below)
- Laminator (optional)
As with our other file folder games, the first step will be to attach the cover of your game to the front of your folder.
Quick tip! Use a little bit of double-sided tape to hold your cover in place while you lay the contact paper over top. This will stop it from sliding around or lifting up with the static from the contact paper.
Once your cover is on, cut out the paint splatter pieces (both the black and white and color versions) and laminate the colored ones.
Attach the black and white splatters to the inside of your file folder using some more contact paper and stick a Velcro dot to each one.
Stick the opposite side of the Velcro to the backs of the colored splatters and you’re ready to play.
Give your child the colored pieces and have them read and match the color words to the corresponding colored paint splatters.
