Cut and make your materials sturdy.  I chose to laminate but there are many other options -- mount on cardboard, clear contact paper, packaging tape, etc. 
A second set of activity sheets have been provided to help your children spell the color words without assistance.
My little one is almost two. We kept this simple. I pulled off all the letters from one card and he matched the letters. Use your best judgment on how hard to make this task.
This activity was designed to be used along with Three Ghost Friends: Learn About Colors.

  1. I love that you made this adaptable for different levels, Eric! Thanks so much for sharing your free printable! I pinned this to both the Reading and Writing Readiness Pinterest board at http://pinterest.com/noflashcards/reading-writing-readiness/ and to my Kids' Halloween Activities board (fun activity anytime but don't want to forget it at Halloween).
