Paint Chip Number Punch Puzzle & 27 More Ways to Learn with Paint Chips

By 5:00 AM , , ,

If you are like me and have a stash because the task of choosing a paint color for one or more rooms of your house is enough to make you go crazy you keep going back to find "the right one," you'll appreciate this list of 28 ways to learn with paint chip swatches!  And to be honest, the task of choosing a paint color was pure insanity... but that is a whole other story ; )

Cool Ways to Learn with Paint Chips

Before I share the many other paint chip learning activities with you, here is a new one I made up for my toddler.  I grabbed two 3 color paint swatches from my stash and used a paper punch to punch a certain number of stars in each color.
I used one paint swatch for the numbers 1-3 and the other paint swatch for numbers 4-6. I could not find my smaller hole puncher, so that is why I used two paint swatches.  If you have a smaller hold punch, you could probably just use one 6 colored paint swatch and punch the numbers accordingly.
Next, I cut them up into individual colors so that my toddler would have to count to put them back in the correct order.  Also, because the paint swatches go from light to dark, there is an element of self correction built into the activity.
Easy to put together and adapt as needed!

Now, here are 27 more ways to use paint chips in your homeschool and/ or classroom!
