A Color of His Own Matching Activity

A Color of His Own Matching Activity
We love the book “A Color of His Own” by Leo Lionni. It’s about a lizard who wishes he could just have a color of his own instead of changing wherever he goes. If you love this book as much as we do, you need this A Color of His own Matching Activity for your preschooler or toddler!

I created this chameleon matching printable based on that book. It is great for practicing the skills of visual discrimination, color matching, pattern matching, and sorting.

How to Use A Color of His Own Matching Activity: 

  1. Print this Chameleon Matching Printable on different colors of paper.
  2. Cut out the chameleons and leaves. 
  3. Put the leaves in a row in front of your child and give him the chameleons to match to the leaves.
  4. You might want to start with just the solids or just the dotted ones before mixing them all together. 

Other Ideas:

  • Sort them into two piles, chameleons and leaves. 
  • Sort by color instead of matching
