Colour Walk

Today the weather was beautiful.  
We haven't had many days like this so far this spring and we
didn't want to miss the sunshine so we spent gym time outside plus a little longer.
We went on a colour walk.
I saw the idea on Frugal Family Fun blog.
I went to the local hardware store and picked out a variety of colour sample cards.
Punched a flower shaped hole in them and laminated them.
The children picked out two colours and went hunting.

Sometimes it was hard to find our colours or the right shade.
Until we spotted colours on ourselves,
or on other things.

The children and grown ups enjoyed it far more than I anticipated.


  1. I really want to do this over the summer! I love it!

  2. What a fabulous idea. I already have the paint chips ready and waiting!

  3. This is FUN!!!! I wish we had an outdoor area or garden so we could go beyond the classroom/school too!

  4. It's true that the simplest things can be the most fun.

  5. Thanks for sharing this idea. It will be a fantastic summer boredom buster!

  6. I love this idea! You should come & link up with Fun for Kids Friday
