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.
