Kids love playing with colors. Take a big piece of paper. Choose two or three colors. Ask your preschooler to dip their fingers and start doing finger prints. When they are printing their finger prints tell your preschooler what the color is. Children love learning while they are playing.
2. A color a day:

Dedicate one color a day in a week. Say you dedicate green color for Monday, make sure everything is green. Dress up your preschooler in green, give green food items to eat, show green color items like tree leaves, green tissue paper, green vegetables, color a picture in green, etc. You can do the same for the other colors. This was done in my daughter’s school.
3. Singing color rhymes:
Children love singing; utilize this to teach your preschooler colors. Sing color rhymes with your preschooler.
4. Sort colors:

9. Build a color tower with blocks:
