Have fun while practicing color recognition, hand-eye coordination, and developing fine motor skills with these color matching clip cards. Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy cutting out the cards and clipping them afterward.
Use this activity to teach basic colors to your child and spend time together or to simply keep them occupied while you do something else (while supervising them of course).
The color matching clip cards are available as a free download at the bottom of this post.
Color Match and Clip Cards
Learning colors is often quicker for children because they see them every day. Once they start identifying colors with their names, the fun begins. Instead of just recognizing the color, they will enjoy saying the names.
Color clip cards make learning colors exciting because they are versatile. Your child will say out the names of the colors as they match them. The activity is quick and easy to prepare and can be done with clothespins, stickers, or pom poms.

How To Use The Color Clip Cards
The free pdf download includes ten color cards for your child to learn these colors: red, green, yellow, blue, purple, orange, brown, pink, black, and grey.
Prepare The Clip Cards For Use
Download and print out the cards, two cards on one page. Laminate them to make them reusable. You can also use cardstock for stability. Cut out individual cards so that you have ten cards with pictures and colors to clip.
Take one card at a time and have your child tell you the color of the picture on the card, then ask them to take a clothespin and clip on the color that matches the picture.
You can also allow free play and let your little one match the colors on their own without telling you the names.
Learning Colors Using Stickers
Just like on these posts with ABC Clip Cards and Numbers Flashcards, your child can match the colors using stickers instead of clothespins. The stickers don’t have to be of the same color they are matching, in fact, it is easier to see the color selected if the sticker is a different color.
You can also do the same with pom poms.
Matching Colors With Playdough
Instead of using clothespins and stickers to match colors, use playdough and continue developing those fine motor and sensory skills.
Again, playdough doesn’t have to be the same color being matched. As long as your child can discriminate between different colors.
You can also use finger paint, crayons, or even cut out the other numbers and only leave the correct number on the cut.
