What Happens When You Upcycle Paint Chips...

You can teach anything from math skills to literacy and the arts.  Paint chips are not only versatile but it's easy to get your hands on stacks of them, head on down to your local hardware store and stop by the paint department and just ask an associate for any discontinued paint chips you could have.

Today I'll show you a few examples of ways you can use them to introduce, reinforce and practice literacy and math skills for kids of ALL ages. Here are some of my favourites:

Use them to teach....

Skip Counting/Number Patterns


Word Families


Ordering numbers from least to greatest and vice versa

Practicing two/three step equations, fractions, learn how to develop detailed sentences, procedural writing and oh WOW...the list grows!!!

Get creative when thinking up new ways to introduce new skills and if you're looking for additional inspiration, I'm sure if you scour the web you'll find the possibilities are endless. 

Have fun!
