Learning Colors Scavenger Hunt

When my boys were younger I loved to take them outside to learn and play. One of my boys is very physical and hands on and struggles to learn in a typical school type of setting. He’s a very kinesthetic learner. So, he looked forward to our outside days the most. And he really loved learning colors when we would have a learning colors scavenger hunt.

Begin by hot glueing clothespins to your board. I used a baking sheet from the dollar store. You could even paint your clothespins to match the color chip if you want. But, I liked to use our boards for other activities too, so I left the clothespins unpainted. 

Then, clip the colored paint chips onto the board. You could also write the color on the paint ship to help with letter and word recognition.
