Hey mamas! I hope you have had an awesome week! We have a busy weekend ahead of us, but I wanted to pop in today with a fun snack time activity to do with your kiddos! I created this fun little game that combines color recognition, shape identification, fine motor skills, and most importantly – a yummy snack ;)
Pepperidge Farm has these awesome bags of Goldfish crackers filled with four fun colors – orange (like we all know and love), yellow, green, and red! They’re all made with 100% real cheese with colors derived from plants.
Goldfish crackers also happen to be perfect for practicing shape and color skills. They’re like teeny tiny building blocks ;)
Snack Time Color and Shape Game
To get started, grab yourself a bag of Goldfish crackers and then download, print, and cut out your game cards! It couldn’t be easier!
The game cards include 8 shapes and 4 colors. Simply have your child choose one shape card and one color card. Then, use the Goldfish crackers to create the corresponding design.
So… a red color card + a heart shape card = a red heart!
Mix up the cards to create endless combinations! And don’t forget that you can eat your creation once it’s done!
Once your kiddo has mastered their shapes and colors, you can tell them about all of the interesting ways Pepperidge Farms has used plants to give Goldfish crackers their colors!
Red: red beet juice concentrate and paprika extracted from sweet red peppers
Green: watermelon & Huito (wee-toe) juice concentrates mixed with extracted Turmeric
Yellow: extracted Turmeric.
