We could all use a little more color in our life! Right? These Rainbow Busy Bags for Preschoolers, or even Kindergarteners, are some of my favorite color matching, color sorting, and rainbow activities for early learners. You will find most of these preschool activities have a fine motor skills focus because you know how I love sneaking in fine motor skills activities any way I can. Every single one of the rainbow busy bags in this list are easy to put together–requiring few materials or time to make–so you can put them together quickly and get started using them with your preschooler right away.

If your kids love popping bubble wrap, then they are sure to love this Rainbow Bubble Wrap Busy Bag from Lalymom. I’m going to make this one ASAP for my 4 year old because he loves bubble wrap.

Plus, this is also another great fine motor skills activity. Are you sensing a theme here yet, or is it just me?

This Matchstick Color Sorting Fine Motor Toy from the Imagination Tree is similar to an activity my 4 year old loves to do with pipe cleaners.

Putting those tiny matchsticks or toothpicks is a tricky little skill for those little hands.
