Gina Ginger Colours - Memory Game 2

Preparation instructions

Playing and learning the colours with Gina Ginger! Finding the pairs.                                                                                                        

Download the document and print it out, preferably on white card.

Colour Gina’s hair (painting each colour twice) before cutting out the playing cards. We recommend that you start with the following colours: orange, green, yellow, pink, red and purple (leave one playing card white to represent the white colour).

If we use finger paint for the hair we can use the four primary colours plus the white to mix the paints while saying, “Yellow and blue makes green”, “Red and yellow makes orange”, “Blue and red makes purple”, etc.

Next, cut out the playing cards. Place them face down on the table and start playing Memory, while saying, “Gina’s hair is + colour”, “I’ve got a pair!”, “I haven’t got a pair!”, “Blue and red makes purple”, etc.

Now you can start playing!

Required material

Fourteen playing cards with Gina’s face on each one, but with differently coloured hair: pink, green, yellow, orange, red and white (you don't need to colour the white one. It is the Gina playing card with her hair left white).

Coloured pencils, felt-tip pens, crayons or finger paints.

Educational goals

To learn vocabulary related to colours. For example. “Gina’s hair is + colour”, “I’ve got a pair!”, “I haven’t got a pair!”, “Yellow and blue makes green...”.

Vocabulary for colours: orange, green, yellow, pink, white, red and purple.
