The pdf file below has six worksheets that teach the student the Filipino names for several colors. Click on the link below, not the thumbnails, to open the file in another tab.
The first worksheet asks the student to color each crayon according to the color label.
The succeeding worksheets introduce each color and three items that have that color. The student is also asked to practice writing the color name. The student may be asked to color the crayon and the objects shown.
In the last worksheet, the student is asked to identify the color of the objects shown and color them accordingly.
The crayon clipart is by samutsamot_mom. The images for dalandan, kalabasa, saging, damo, ubas, talong, sibuyas, sapatos, sinturon, buhok, medyas, tsokolate, mangga, tissue, and STOP sign are also by samutsamot_mom. All the other images were obtained from openclipart.org.
I chose to use the words bughaw and luntian for the colors blue and green, respectively. However, if you would like to use the Spanish-based words asul and berde, you may leave a comment below, so I can make another version of the worksheets with these words.
The word dalandan refers to the citrus fruit that is native to the Philippines. If an object is orange-colored, it can be described as kulay dalandan. The word tsokolate is the Filipino word for chocolate. If an object is brown or dark brown in color, it may be described as kulay tsokolate. The word kayumanggi is used to refer to the brown color of the skin of people such as Filipinos. It is not typically used to refer to the brown color of objects.
You may print and distribute these worksheets to your students or children, but please do not do so for profit. Watch your karma.
Below is the berde-asul version of the Mga Kulay worksheets.
The PDF file below are for those who use the words berde, asul, and ube (for green, blue, and violet, respectively).

Thank you so much for this! A big help for my kids!
Taught mg now grade 2 son with your worksheets.
Now teaching my 5 year old.
God bless you po! ♡
Hi, amazing page. Is there a way to download all the those amazing worksheets in one zip file? Thanks!
I’m afraid there is no way you can download all worksheets at one time. You may type the topic of the worksheet you are looking for in the blog’s Search box.
Salamat po for your prompt reply. I will do as suggested. I wanted to let you know that I am almost 40 years old, started learning Tagalog on my own at very basic level, and believe it or not, I actually find your worksheets informative for individuals like myself. I just thought to let you know that not only kids could benefit from your hard work and marvelous effort here. The reason for me trying to take a shot at Tagalog is that my spouse is Filipina, and we are expecting our baby soon. Best regards!
Hello, Mostafa! What wonderful news for you and your wife! I wish your wife and baby good health and a problem-free birth experience. Yes, I’m starting to realize that my worksheets are being used not only by Filipino children and students, but also by people who wish to learn Filipino. I am happy to be of service to people like you who are willing to learn. Old folks like us have to keep on learning! Best regards!
Sorry I didnt see the puti is already included. Thank you for this! I noticed you used Lila for purple/violet. In my son’s school they use ube instead.
Hi, Mabel! I’ve updated the post and added a third PDF file with ube. See the bottom of the post.
Thank you for sharing your worksheet! I can use this to review my kids. Can you include puti also? In school they use asul and berde so your no 2 worksheet helps a lot!
Your worksheets are helpful! Do you have one on ‘Family’? Like family tree, Filipino words for dad,mum etc?
Hi, Jean! Please check out my previous post on the members of the Filipino family here. Hope this helps!
Thank you very much for sharing these free Filipino worksheets. I’ll be using them in class. I teach Filipino to our K-6 students (non-Filipino)here in Sydney and these will be useful! I also printed your other worksheets. I’m so happy that I saw them as I don’t have a lot of resources. I use asul and berde instead of bughaw and luntian because they are shorter and easier to say. Hope you will have more worksheets available like a family theme. Keep up the great work!!
Hi, Jean! I’ve edited this post to include the berde-asul version. The link is at the end of the post.
Your page is so helpful. Thank you, I don’t know where to start. My son will start studying this June. He need to start learning and understanding filipino words. Again thank you.
No problem, Jen! Glad I could be of help to you and your son.
Thank you for this! I am trying to teach my son how to speak in Filipino and your worksheets are really helpful.
Just a comment though, I think the color orange in Filipino is kahel. 🙂
Again, thank you for posting worksheets. They are heaven-sent!
Hi, Nina! According to the UP Diksiyonaryong Filipino, kahel refers to the dalandan fruit or citrus tree species. I think it comes from the Spanish word cajel. The word narangha, from the Spanish word for orange naranja, is also sometimes used in Filipino to refer to the color orange. So any of these words are appropriate to refer to the color orange.
