I originally intended for Emma to play a memory game with these paint chips, but while she loves memory games on the computer she did not enjoy the paint chip version. Both she and Johnny enjoy this matching game. It’s pretty challenging for Johnny and easy but fun for Emma.
- Trim paint chips.
- Attach one set to file folder using packing tape.
- Use second set to match.
- Make a pocket for the second set out of packing tape (fold one piece in half for the pocket and use three more pieces to attach to the folder).
- Hand to your child to play.
Children enjoy this simple game, which helps them develop color awareness. Color matching also reinforces one to one correspondence, which will help them with math as they grow older.
