For this game you will need two sets of each color paint chip and cardstock.
Choose several shades from each paint sample and glue to cardstock. I used spray craft glue but any type of glue will work. Be sure to cover the entire surface with glue--when you cut it will fall apart if you have not glued all parts. At this point you could choose to laminate for durability.
Cut apart each individual paint chip. I have 42 cards here but I will not be using them all for my daughter. For young children (3-4 years old) I would recommend no more than 20-25 cards.
To play the game, simply turn over 2 cards at a time. If they match, the player keeps the cards and gets another turn. If they do not match, flip them back over and the next player gets a turn. Continue until all cards have been matched. For young children, you can place them face up and simply have them match colors and name the colors.
I'm sure you all have other wonderful ideas for what to do with this activity. What are your suggestions?
