Building an application with four colored buttons

I want to build an application with four buttons (red, blue, green, yellow). Each time a button is clicked, the background on the form would change to that selected color. Can you help me figure out how to do this?
Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As
System.Object,
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Me.BackColor = Color.Red
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As
System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Me.BackColor = Color.Green

    End Sub
End Class
