The How To:
First cut your paint sample so that you have as big of a rectangle as possible without having the printed letters on it. Then use a saw(or a kitchen knife or box cutter) to cut the the wood into even pieces. Glue the paint samples on and cover it with a coat of Modpodge and you are done! I'll post again when I get the more advanced set done.
The idea of this activity is for the child to grade the colors from lightest to darkest. It helps the child strengthen their visual differentiation skills:)
P.S. How cute is this sweet boy?!?!?
What a great idea. I have a heap of these too from my last visit to the hardware shop. I just need to hunt out some suitable wood. Thanks for the inspiration :)ReplyDelete
Another good idea!ReplyDelete
I've also used sample laminate chips for
sorting,matching and grading.
These are available anywhere kitchen
cabinets are sold. The textured ones
are a great extension to the regular
colors. You'd be amazed at the variety!
