This is one of the first preschool and kindergarten games I made, back in 2005.
Players choose a playing board and gather a pile of small markers such as beans, pennies, or torn pieces of paper (monitor very young children with these!). Players then take turns picking a calling card and naming both the color and shape represented on the card, such as -red circle- or -pink diamond-. Every player who has that color and shape combination on their board may cover the square with a marker, and the first player to cover 5 squares in a row wins the game. Special rainbow-colored shapes in the center of each board make play more interesting, and additional shapes cards are provided for extension activities.
- The printable PDF includes:
- 12 different playing boards
- Deck of 60 calling cards
- BONUS page of shapes cards for extension activities
- Full instructions
- Ideas for more extension activities
- Printing & storage tips
Practice both colors and shapes together while trying to get five in a row to win the game.
Bonus shapes cards included.
