Learning a beautiful nursery rhyme of colors is always a good idea, especially if children love to draw and color and crayons and watercolors are the great protagonists of their afternoons of play. Nursery rhymes and themed poems are a great way to train the memory of little ones, prompting them to remember short, rhythmic lines. They are already used to doing it at school with longer poems, especially during holidays like Christmas. But learning nursery rhymes at home is a good way to share a rhyming poem, to recite together for example on car trips or when you get bored. Here then are the most beautiful nursery rhymes on colors for children, short and long, rhyming or not, to read and memorize.
Nursery rhyme of colors, M. Pratelli
pink bow of my kitty
Nutella is brown
yellow instead is this star
green is the jumping frog
white white is the flour
black the spots of the little dog
red is the fire in the fireplace
orange peel of tangerines
purple shoes for my little feet.
Here is the set of all colors
that make our hearts happy.
The colors, Lina Schwarz
We are the red and the yellow,
let’s do a dance together
and by combination
orange comes out.
We are the blue and the red,
we turn as hard as we can,
united with affection
we form the violet.
We are the yellow and the blue,
we run up and down:
each of the two gets lost,
and the green pops out.
Seven colors, Elio Giacano
Once upon a time there was a distant country
where the colors shake hands.
Of all the red was the smallest
and the orange was close to him.
The bright yellow laughed loudly
and the green next to it spoke to the plants.
High in the sky blue and blue
they looked at the earth and stood there.
Larger and darker than the others was the purple,
but the seven seemed to be one
and who saw them in the clear sky
he said: “Look, there’s the rainbow!”
Many colors, A. Mari
There is a blue balloon
and there’s a green pickup truck,
a red and yellow ball
jump, roll and wobble;
green red and blue cubes,
then I don’t remember anymore.
There are many colors,
and I like them all:
but if I find something else
I would like it pink.
From my window, L. Schwarz
I look out the window
and I see a whole world.
There is a small white house
and there is a black chimney … There is a piece of lawn
and a green sapling.
There is, high above, the sky
and the eye gets lost
The colors of the professions, Gianni Rodari
I know the colors of the trades:
the bakers are white,
they get up before the birds
and they have flour in their hair;
the chimney sweeps are black,
of seven colors are the painters;
the workshop workers
they have a nice blue overalls,
their hands are dirty with grease:
idlers go for a walk,
they don’t get a finger dirty
but their trade is not clean.
Nursery rhyme of the color yellow
Lemon is yellow, banana, sun and moon are yellow.
The queen’s crown is yellow
and light bulb.
Pears are almost always yellow
and lemonade to drink.
Yellow is the heart of the daisy
that blossomed on the lawn this morning.
Nursery rhyme of primary colors, Alessia de Falco and Matteo Princivalle
Once upon a time there was Color Wizard,
excellent magician and great painter.
Yellow painted the sun shining,
Red is the fire that sparkles.
Blue made the sky and the seas.
He had used primary colors.
