Play & Learn with Colors

Colors are a vital early childhood education concept for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and even older kids! Vivid color adds excitement to all kids' activities so we are always adding the rainbow to our playful learning ideas. We've rounded up the very best preschool color ideas to learn and play for your own classroom or summer camp at home!
