We have seen some stunning flowers lately alhamdulillah. Just beautiful, vibrant colours that Allah has placed in His creation. To compliment what we have been seeing, I made an Arabic colour matching game using painted wooden flowers and popsicle sticks for the stems.
I painted wooden flower pieces different colours. All of the flowers are the same type to allow the child to focus on colour instead of variation in flower designs. Then I took popsicle sticks and wrote the names of the colours in Arabic on one side. On the back of each stick I painted the corresponding colours of the flowers (this is the control of error in the game, more on that further down insha'Allah) - one stick to match each flower.
The flowers in the bottom right hand corner are gold, silver and yellow but due to the lighting you can't tell.
For older children, place the sticks word side up. Invite the child to read the colour name (or you can read it for them insha'Allah) and then invite them to find the corresponding flower to match. The child can check their answers by simply turning the stick over to see if the colour on the opposite side of the stick matches the flower they matched it with (Control of Error).
For younger toddlers, you can simply have them match the coloured sticks to the correct stick and tell them the name of the colour in Arabic.
You can use cut out flowers from magazine or you can make flowers from construction paper to play this game. Your stems can be made from cardboard, construction paper or whatever is handy and will work insha'Allah.
