Sometimes it can be difficult to find activities that my kindergartner and my toddler can do together, but this one was easy enough for both of them to enjoy. I got my inspiration from this outdoor color match from Inner Child Fun.
The basic idea is the same, get free samples of paint swatches from the shop, hole punch each shade, and use them to hunt for colors in the world around you.
But if you’re like me and you use a fancy shaped hole-punch, you’ll be left looking at the left-over color scrap pieces and wondering what to do with them.
For toddler SunnyGirl, I used magnetic tape to create a color sorting game.
The back of each color scrap has a magnet so she can remove them and put them back into place with ease.
For kindergartner LittleMan, a handwriting book.
One page per color, with the color scraps taped into place. When he finds an object of that color, he writes down the object’s name next to the color it matches.
