Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime

Activity/Song: Color Game By Jim Gill

on April 20, 2012

The Color Game is a fun song that I love to use in storytime.  It is sung by the wonderful Jim Gill, who will be at my library in May 🙂  SO EXCITED!!! BTW, check out his new CD, it’s pretty sweet.  It’s a rhyming song where you take different colors and put them on different parts of your body.  I’ve found it’s best to use with older kids (3 and up) because it is a little fast paced and you really have to listen and pay attention.  But I’m sure the littler ones would enjoy it too!  What I like to do is hand out a little bunch of circles to each child that has a range of colors so they can use those to place on the different body parts.  We sit on the floor and spread the colors out around us so we can see each one.  “Take red, put it on your head.  Take yellow, put it on your elbow” and so on.  If you haven’t ever used the Color Game in ST, I urge you to try it!  Enjoy!
