Brilliant Ideas

Two of you fabulous readers left great comments on last Thursday’s post about making color/shape flash cards.

  • Kellie suggested getting paint chips from a home improvement store to use as color flash cards. The Mickey Mouse shaped ones are even more fun for the kids, and they’re free!
  • Annette says she cuts out shapes by hand and then stores each shape in its own envelope with the shape traced on the front so it’s like a matching/puzzle game.

Here are some other fun projects using paint chips:
