paint chip matching game tutorial

Hey guys! Head over to Crafting in my Closet today for the quick how to for this super easy and fun to play with clothespin and paint chip game!  I’ve known Teresa for a long time (pre-marriage and kids lol those were the days….), so I am soo excited to be on her blog today with a fun (and really really easy) craft to make for your kiddos to keep them entertained! This is especially great to throw in the car for when emergency bouts of boredom hit!

It’s a simple color matching game using just paint chips and clothespins. (well and a glue gun too)


Sadie had a blast matching them up-and a few of them were harder than I thought they’d be for her. She loved when I mixed them all up and she had to sort them out. “Mom” she said, “Pink is not in the rainbow, but I still like it so it’s ok”. Why, thanks for your approval, dear. ;)


  1. Good idea!!

  2. Great idea for a use of all those paint chips!

  3. Ooh they look like fun – I’d set the challenge of trying to find things around the house that are the same colour as the swatches on the pegs! Although you may be finding pegs in weird places for a while :)

  4. fun idea! according to Em, pink is the ONLY color in the rainbow. maybe purple if she’s feeling generous. ;)

  5. I love it! Our daughter needs a little more time before she’ll be able to do that. Fun!


  6. What a great idea! My daughter LOVES clothes pegs – this would definitely be a winner!

  7. Cute!

  8. Great idea! Couldn’t help but pin it!

  9. What a wonderful idea!

  10. Wow! It is a really great idea!

  11. This is so cute! Pinning!

  12. Clever! I shall do this! Thank you!


  1. […] I don’t have a picture of this (although I will probably take one sometime), but I made a paint chip color matching game for Hunter.  It looks almost exactly like this one. […]
