Pegs and colour cards

I was looking at some paint colours for our spare room and saw the fantastic range of colours available. Best of all these sample cards are FREE! This activity develops both fine motor skills and cognitive thinking. The aim is to match the colours.

We used coloured pegs and paint sample colour cards.


The first time you do this activity your little one will still need some coaching. If they are still very young, they wont be able to put the pegs on by themselves yet, but you can encourage their grip by letting them pull it off.


Let the match the colours of the pegs with the colours on the cards, and for older ones let them strengthen their fingers by opening the pegs and attaching them to the cards.
