We love looking at photo albums. My son loves to get out his baby book and see how cute he was. It’s fun to look at pictures of personal things. So I thought it would be fun to come up with a personal book of colors using pictures from around our house.

Supplies for Color Picture Book:

  • Camera
  • Photo Album
  • Colored paper – all colors of the rainbow

For each color, we took 3 pictures of 3 different things. We started with red and took pictures of things that are the color red: tomatoes, Elmo, and a magnet. Then we wrote the word “red” on a red piece of paper that’s cut down to size, fitting in a slot in the album. I also wrote the word of the object for each page so we could read it like a book.

The kids loved finding all kinds of colors in the house and wanted to include soooo many more pictures of their things. We may have to make a sequel to this one.

It’s been fun to look at our Color Book and see some of the kids favorite things. I think I may try this with letters next, taking pictures of items that start with letters of the alphabet.
