Playing Cars and Learning French

February 24, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Teach french kids children colors

Here’s a fun little activity you can do with your son (or daugther) if they have lots of little hot wheel type cars like my son does. You can practice saying colors and using “Je vois…” (I see), when doing the activity.

What you will need:
masking tape
little cars

What to do:
1. Make a little track and parking areas on a piece of carpet. (Before you do this, make sure to try it out to see if the tape will come off easily. Also, don’t leave the tape on too long, so you can easily pull it off.)
2. Have your son group all of the cars together by color in different parking areas. You can also group them by any other characteristic like size.
3. As you play together you can say things like “Je vois les voitures bleues” (I see the blue cars). Or simply “voitures bleues” (blue cars).

Finger painting and making colors

January 19, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Teach french kids children colors

Today was beautiful outside so I decided to let the kids fingerpaint outside on a big piece of paper. What we focused on in our lesson was combing 2 colors to make a new color. An example is: Bleu et Jaune fait vert. (Blue and yellow make green).

If it’s still cold where you live, you can do this indoors with finger paints, water colors or acrylic paints. Kids love painting so much you’ll have them speaking in no time. Here’s some color words you can use:

Blue – bleu
Yellow – jaune
Orange – orange
Green – vert
Red – rouge
Pink – rose
Light blue – bleu clair
Brown – marron
Grey – gris
White – blanc
Black – noir
