Gingerbread Color Match Pompoms Activity Cards: Last week we did a gingerbread color match activity which had Bella using her fine motor skills to place each pom pom on the colored circles shown on each gingerbread man card. This fine motor color matching activity is a perfect one to use during November and December with preschoolers. Read on to find out more and pick up these fun gingerbread men cards at the end of this post!
The activity can be perfectly paired with these fun and simple PRESCHOOL CHRISTMAS THEMED MATH AND LITERACY CENTERS. Or if you’re looking for something easier to use with your toddler group, these printable card bundle are a perfect fit!

Gingerbread Color Match Activity
What we did first is make sure Bella knows her colors. So we went over the basic colors of the pom poms, I held out a pom pom and I asked Bella ‘What color is this pompom?’ and she’d answer with ‘red, blue, yellow or green’ . This activity included the colors green, blue, red and yellow. Bella is almost two years old so was able to complete this activity with minimal help. She was having trouble distinguishing between the green and the blue but in time this will become easier for her to identify.
The images above are from our Christmas busy book printable binder.
So I told her that we need to match the pom pom colors to the colors of the buttons on each gingerbread card. She understood this quickly and began matching the pom poms. It helps to add though that we’ve been doing lots and lots of color matching activities with counters and colored chips so Bella knew the drill as she’s done this type of activity before.
As a match extension activity, Bella and I counted how many pom poms we were placing on the gingerbread. She’s far too young to understand match concepts at the moment but she is already getting the hang of counting as we do this.
I love incorporating Christmas fine motor printable activities to our morning tubs!
