Jelly Bean Color Game

Last month I created a game called End of the Rainbow that ended up being one of my most popular posts!  This month I created a similar game with an Easter twist! 

To play all you need are 20 jelly beans per player and a copy of the printable materials below!

1. Shuffle cards and place them in a pile face down.

2. Each player takes a game board and places 20 jelly beans (various colors)  on the corresponding colored jelly bean on their game board. 

3. Players take turns choosing a card and placing the correct number/color of jelly beans in the Easter basket.  If a player draws a blank card he skips his turn.  If a player draws an Easter Bunny card he chooses any color jelly bean to put to his basket.    

4. The first player to fill their Easter basket with all their jelly beans wins! 

Start with all the jelly beans in the Easter basket and play the game in reverse.  The first player to empty their Easter basket wins! 


Meeting the Needs of Learners 
I created this game for children able to read color words.  The cards for this game include only color words and are not actually colored in.  If your child is not able to read color words yet, this game can be easily modified.  Simply help your child color in the jelly bean cards before playing. 

Skills Practiced

Reading color words
Counting numbers 1-20
Comparing quantities 
Sorting by color
