Paint Chip Matching Game

Want another fun Paint Chip craft? 
Ok how about an Easy one?
This is one of my daughter's new favorite matching games and it was super easy to make as you can tell!



Chose some Paint Chip colors....yes once again a hard decision so i decided to do the rainbow colors!

Grab your hot glue gun and a pair of scissors

And last some clothespins 


I  cut of the sides of the paint chip that had words and numbers on it.

Then i cut a little piece from each of the color shades and glued them each onto a clothespin

I also mounted the color pieces onto poster board to make it a little firmer, if your really into it you could also laminate them but i wasn't feeling that ambitious.

And there you have it!

And let the fun begin!

As you can tell we're still kind of working on the whole "matching" colors thing,but it won't take long!

For Hailey I definitely know this will keep her busy for awhile!


Have Fun

  4. This is a fantastic idea, thank you for sharing! I will be stopping and picking out some paint chips soon! It is a little advanced for my girl, but I think I'll introduce it and see how she handles it. What the worse that could happen? I can just put it away for a little while and come back to it later!

    I'd love if you'd like to link up to my Teaching Time for Toddlers post!

  10. Hi....what a cute and quick idea. I'll have to make this to have around for my youngest granddaughters when they are here. I'm a new follower from Hop Till You Drop Fridays...I'm following by e-mail too because I seem to check that more often than my Google Friends. Anyway, just wanted to let you know how much I've been enjoying myself as I look around your site. I found your summer tote tutorial and just fell in love with it. I just had to pin it! Want to make one as soon as possible....summer has definitely arrived in Phoenix already! Please drop by my place when you get a chance...I'd love to have you. :)

  19. This is a great idea. My kids love picking out paint chips at the home improvement store, so now we would have a reasonable use for them, instead of just stashing them into our pillowcases. :)

    I'm visiting from the Nifty Thrify linkying party. I would if you stoppped by my blog.

    Thanks for sharing,

  36. Clipping Magic The demand of a high-quality Clipping Magic is pretty high lately. In some industries, perfection is not compulsory, but highly needed. This scene is real to digital marketing, graphic designing or simply others that require the practitioners to look professional, reliable and careful about details. Photos are one of the so many things where the impression comes from.
