I saw THIS awesome idea at Frugal Family Fun Blog a few months ago and thought it was such a cool idea.
The kids always love picking out paint swatches when we go to Home Depot, so the other day, I grabbed a bunch too. Then I just punched a hole in each card, attached a few cards with a piece of string and let the kids loose in the backyard to see who could find the best match.
|Close match for this berry|
|This gray matches the latch on the fence gate|
|Found a match in the sandbox|
|This dead pine branch is the perfect rust color|
|Looks like a close match for this patch of dirt|
|This little leaf might be the winner!|
I chose earth tones this time because I planned on having them do it outdoors, but bright color swatches would be perfect for a playroom scavenger hunt or autumn hues would be great when the leaves start changing colors.
