Shapes and Colours

A CBCA Notable Early Childhood Book of the Year for 2021 this simple book is perfect for young children in Pre-School or Kindergarten learning their colours and shapes. Using silhouettes and actual images, John Canty teaches children the colours of the rainbow and familiar items for each of those colours.

The 6 activities we have made for this book are also aimed at Pre-School and Kindergarten students and explore shapes, colour, foods, printing, handwriting and finding the odd one out.

The video walkthrough above shows each of the activities and also offers suggestions for activities you can do to help teach colours as they appear in nature.  Watch the video to find out more.


The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
