Printable Color Wheel

Printable Color Wheel

Use our printable color wheel for lots of colorful activities for little artists. Various color wheels show primary colors, secondary colors and tertiary colors.
Our primary color wheel uses red, yellow and blue – the basic colors to start with and more familiar for kids than magenta, cyan and yellow. It is also more suitable and widely used as reference hues for art activities. We’ll update with alternative color wheels later.

You can use these color wheels as wall posters to make a kids room more colorful. While they enjoy the look of it, they can learn the basic colors and the relationship between colors as well as color names. Use together with our color flash cards for learning and making your room more colorful.

Color in the blank ones or mix your pigments and experiment!
For preschoolers, you need to use safe food dye and non-toxic pigments for color mixing activities.
