thank you, crystal for inviting me over to your little space on the internet!!
i’m honored to be guest posting on little bit funky today.
you are an inspiration on so many levels…this is a dream come true for me.

ok, enough sappiness.
let’s get on to why we’re all here.

if your house is anything like mine this summer then you have a few kids that are semi-self-sufficient and then you have a preschooler who needs constant attention and direction {in fun activity to keep her busy.}

this idea is not a new one.
i first saw it on instagram from someone who first saw it on pinterest…
it’s so simple.
and it’s one of those crafts/activities that’ll have you thinking “why didn’t i think of that?”

first, gather your supplies.
you’ll need…

now, it’s time for the fun!
call your preschooler in for A GAME!!
the idea is to simply match the clothes pin colors to the paint chip colors.

genius, right!?

have her name the colors as she completes a card.
fun AND learning.
