Have you ever taken a preschooler out to shop for clothes?
My four-year-old has recently developed a severe aversion to particular colors and textures, so shopping for clothing is…an interesting experience.
Here’s a sample exchange:
Me: “What do you think about this shirt?”
Her: *waves both arms frantically* “No, Mom! I only like purple right now!”
Clearly, she knows her colors.
Preschoolers typically do a great job at distinguishing colors, sizes, and quantities when it comes to things they prefer, but learning to sort common objects by color or amount can still be a little tricky.
So I’m sharing a brand new set of preschool worksheets today: color and number preschool sorting worksheets!
These printables are a great way to give little learners some practice in recognizing colors, counting from one to four, and classifying items as sets – all in one activity!
Plus, they get a little fine motor practice too!
Read on to see how to get your set.

This cut-and-paste activity is a perfect hands-on lesson for preschoolers on colors and counting!
This product includes four color and number sorting worksheets, with directions.
Two printable pages of color cubes are included as well. Plus, a full answer key!
Once the kids cut out the color cubes, they can practice gluing the correct number of cubes in the right section on each worksheet.
You might want to have the kids match up the cubes before gluing.
That way, they’ll get a little extra practice and they’ll have time to switch any cubes around before gluing them down.
(Hint: If your child tends to have a meltdown over mistakes – like mine – the extra practice is totally worth it.)
Each worksheet has a section for different colors and quantities of color cubes.
There are enough color cubes on the two pages to fill all four worksheets – with several left over.
So if you want the kids to get a little extra scissor skills practice, they can work on cutting out the extra cubes afterward!
