Art- Colors 3- File Folder Game- Cat Nap

ELZ- File Folder Game- Colors 3- Cat Nap

 Here is the Cat Nap file folder game!

In this file folder game, your child will be matching 3 colors at one time! I suggest that your child has completed Colors 1 and Colors 2 before they attempt this game, as matching 3 colors can be tricky.

  • Print all 4 pages
  • Cut out and glue title box to the outside of a blank file folder
  • On the inside of the file folder, glue pages 2 and 3 whole- you do not need to cut either of these pages
  • Cut out the colorful balls of yarn
  • To play, have your child match the yarn to the same colored cats!
  • When storing, I usually paperclip the loose pieces directly to the file folder
  • Note: I highly recommend laminating the balls of yarn (if you have the ability to do so) when working with younger children! They will last infinitely longer this way :)

My BIG tip:

  • I like to print pages 1, 2, and 3 onto matte, blank sticker paper! That way, all I have to do is a little cutting, then peel and stick everything to the file folder in 2.0 seconds! NO GLUE AT ALL….yay!! This way saves me A LOT of time, and A LOT of effort!! Plus, the FFG (File Folder Game) is more likely to survive my kids who like to peel the glued pieces off of the folders. :) Also, once I started using sticker paper, I started creating a small “sticker” section on the title pages, or “page 1,” of my FFGs. You or your child can cut out each sticker, peel and stick (or glue them, if using regular paper), and either decorate the game, or do what I like to do- I let my daughters pick out one sticker after they’ve complete the game- then they place it on the outside of the folder, under the title area. This is not only fun for them (really, what kid doesn’t LOVE stickers?), but I get to keep track of how many times they’ve played each game! If you have more than one child using it, it may be helpful to put each child’s name on the outside, and they can place the stickers next to their names. Believe me, try it once and you’ll never want to use glue again!
