Fingerplays About Colors

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Have fun and teach your preschooler their colors at the same time! These songs and fingerplays will not only delight your young learner, but they will also foster your child's musical intelligence!

A Color Mixing Tune

When I paint with yellow,
topped with red,
the colors do change
to orange instead!
I can mix together blue,
and add red to get,
a very awesome shade
of purple-violet!
One more mix to make,
where I paint with yellow,
then add blue
the color I get is green like grass that grew!


I Like Blue
To the tune of "Are you Sleeping?"

I like blue,
I like blue,
yes I do,
yes I do.
The ocean is blue,
The sky is blue,
blue,blue,blue
blue,blue, blue.


Green-O
To the Tune of “Bingo“

There is a color that we know.
Can you guess it's name-o?
G-R-E-E-N,
G-R-E-E-N,
G-R-E-E-N,
And green is the color.

*Repeat with all colors.


The Rainbow Song
To the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”

The rainbow had lots of colors,
Lots of colors,
lots of colors,
The rainbow had lots of colors,
From red to green to yellow.

The first color was red you see,
Red you see,
Red you see.
The first color was red you see,
The color of an apple tree.

The second color was orange so bold,
Orange so bold,
Orange so bold,
The second color was orange so bold,
Like fall leaves of orange and gold.

The third color is yellow so bright,
Yellow so bright,
Yellow so bright,
The third color is yellow so bright.
Like the sun's bright light.

Fourth on the list is the color green,
Color green,
Color green,
Fourth on the list is the color green,
Like a pea and a lima bean.

Blue is next in the color scheme,
Color scheme,
Color scheme,
Blue is next in the color scheme,
Like the sky in a beautiful dream.

Purple ends the rainbow arc,
Rainbow arc,
Rainbow arc,
Purple ends the rainbow arc,
Make Purple and Indigo's mark.

The Rainbow Song
To the tune of "Jesus Loves Me"

Yellow,green,red and blue
Indigo and violet are there too.
All the colors we all know,
Are all part of God's rainbow.
