I saw this in my colleague's classroom.  I love how simple it is!   Easy peasy.  This is a great activity to have in a basket like the photo below or you could set it up like a Montessori tray.
 What you will need:

  • paint samples (2 of each color you use)
  • clothespins
  • tacky glue


One paint sample strip will be the base that the children clip on the matching color.


With the second strip of the color sample – cut a square and glue it to the clothespin.  Let dry.

The children then clip the clothespin to the color square it matches.

So easy.  Such goodness.
