match the colors Activity

sure wish I could think of a snazzier name then that.  {snap}  I got it!
The SNAZZY Match the Colors Activity!

First, here's a little eye candy.  Don't all these bright colors catch your attention?
I saw this idea on Crayon and Freckles Blog and Loved it.  A big thank you to that sweet mommy!

I'm a very hands on teacher.  I'm a visual learner myself so I love touching, feeling, etc.  If you want to teach me to do something....show me first.  I'm not sure what my kids are, but they do really well with hands on activities.
Here is my version.

We used tongs, salad tongs, and tweezers to try and pick them up.
I had thought to use this for my 3 year old, but my 5 and 7 year olds loved it just as much.

BRIGHT IDEA: Try to time them as they separate the colors.  See if they can go faster each time.
or
Make a pattern with the pom-poms and have them put what color should come next.

Off to play with my new SNAZZY (that sure is a fun word to say!) game,

(Princess Brynlee and Drago)
