Here is a fun logic-mathy activity for your preschool or kindergarten student. Elijah has Colorku, and I was thinking it would be fun to have something similar (but simpler) for Simon. I found some printable things online, but I didn't want to use a bucket of colored ink. So, the idea for Paint Chip Sudoku was born!
First, you need to get some of the larger paint chips. I found mine at Lowe's. You only need FOUR chips for each game board.
Cut each paint chip into FOUR equal (or somewhat equal) pieces.
Print one of the game boards (found at the bottom of this post) and choose one color for each number. Glue pieces on the numbered squares.
Now you're all set to play Color Sudoku! If the boards are too challenging for your kiddo, figure out the right places to add some squares and start with easier boards. If you need me to make an easier version, please let me know.
Note: If you don't have paint chips, you could use colored cardstock, wrapping paper, construction paper–whatever you have!
