How we did it:

Materials List

  1. paint chip samples
  2. hole punch
  3. string
  1. Pick up paint samples from your local paint or hardware store, and punch holes in them. (Hint: These samples are available for free. Just make sure not to wipe the store out of any of the colors!)

  2. String a rubber band through the holes (or you can use string). This will make the booklet easy to carry.

  3. Go exploring! Match the paint chip colors to items you spot around the house. Can you find at least one item that matches each color in your booklet?
