Colouring Fruit and Vegetables


We found these great food colouring sheets on
Today I Ate A Rainbow.

Children need to find out about different colours of foods and why they are important for our health, and grouping them by colour in these sheets can help them to recognise fruit and vegetables by matching what colours they are.

The example in the picture below are all 'Red' - strawberries, cherries, apples, raspberries and tomatoes, but there are sheets for other colour groups too.

Names are given for each food in lower case to increase word recognition too.

The site uses detailed photo instructions on what to do, showing the children making their own popsicles so your children can look at the article and do this themselves without much adult help. You can find the recipe h...
