‘My Color Book’ Craft

I love spending time each day reading aloud to my two children. I also enjoy helping my daughter make her own books during our homeschool preschool lessons. Last fall during a review of colors, she and I crafted a color book that helps reinforce primary and secondary colors.


  • Blank paper
  • “My Color Book” template
  • Rainbow paint chips
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers or crayons
  • Plastic sheet protectors
  • Clear packing tape
  • Yarn


  1. Print the “My Color Book” template on the blank paper.
  2. Color the color words with markers or crayons.
  3. Cut the paint chips into individual colors.
  4. Glue the individual paint chips onto each corresponding page.
  5. After the glue dries, insert the pages into plastic sheet protectors.
  6. Tape the sheet protectors closed.
  7. Bind the pages together with yarn.
  8. Read “My Color Book.”
