Workbox resources for preschoolers

This is a fun little die that I found at a local teacher store.  You could make your own by covering a kleenex box.  This one is for colors.  If you were making your own, you could do shapes or letters of the alphabet too.

We played an "I Spy" game with the die.  The child rolls the die and then looks for something in the room that is the same color. 

You could play with this in other ways too.

*Food/Fruit - Roll the die and name something from a catagory that is that color.

*If you are learning about a letter of the alphabet, focus on finding things beginning with this letter and a the color that is rolled.

I'd love to hear more ideas you might have on how to use this for more fun!
