Paint Chip game – Craft for kids

SOS – Summer of Skills!!! Sharing ideas from now through the end of July to keep you full of IDEAS all summer long! 1st up is Sew Fantastic!
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!

“Hi Iโ€™m Julianne author of the blog Sew Fantastic, Iโ€™m wife to an amazing hubby, and mommy to one fun very energetic 2 year old, who always keeps me on my toes!
I started  my blog almost a year ago and I have so much fun making full tutorials of the things I create, and hope that I in some way  inspire others to sew, craft and create beautiful things too!”
This paint chip game has not only been great fun for my daughter on those long rainy days we get here in Washington but as also really helped her with matching colors, so it  was a win โ€“win with this fun craft, I hope your kids can enjoy it as much as little miss Hailey did!!


  1. I just love this! I work at a preschool in the 2yo room and they would love this – As today is the last day of school, I will pin and save for the fall. Most clever indeed!

  2. Wow! This is fantastic! Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Won’t that get expensive having to buy $3 samples for each color….

  7. Not sure why that posted 6times

  8. Why would it be expensive? You just grab the paint chips for free, and then cut up little rectangles for the clothespins ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Great color matching game! Think I need to whip one of these up for the nieces and nephews that visit!

  10. What a great idea! I love the colors and the game. I’m pinning this for sure.

  11. Should definitely do this for my kids!

  12. Absolute genius! We’ll be doing this for sure!
