You’ll need two sets of paint chips in the same colors for this craft, one for the color board and one for the clothes pins. I cut a couple of the lighter, more pastel colors off the paint chip, leaving four colors. After each paint chip card was ready, I traced them onto cardboard I had laying around in the recycling bin to make them a little more durable for little hands. Next, I mod-podged the paint chip cards onto the cardboard. While those set and dry, trace the top part of the clothespin on each color you’re using on the second set of paint chip cards, cut out those rectangles and mod-podge them onto the clothes pins.
It’s a really easy, clever, and fun activity that will help your little ones learn to decipher between different shades of the same color. Alea surprised me and did a great job with the color matching part, but her little hands still need help with the clothespins. It made for a great distraction while we were driving an hour and a half to Cory’s baseball game this past weekend!
Let me know if you try this! I’d love to hear how it went!
