Jolanthe from Homeschool Creations came up with this simple color-matching game made from dollar store stuff. I’m sure my son would LOVE this game (and he always wants to play games!) Parents with younger children KNOW they need to have lots of tricks in their bag to keep the little ones learning and entertained (or learning while they’re entertained!) [how to make a paperclip matching set]

It would be fun to start a little box of learning “toys” – we can start with this one! Or, add this to your in-the-car diversion kit.

Project Estimate:

  • Pack of colored foam sheets, $1
  • Colored paper clips, $1
  • Brad, on hand

Total: $2 (make many and give to your stay-at-home mom & dad friends, or use extra supplies for future projects)
