At the hardware store for lights or Christmas decor? Linger in the paint section and pick up colorful paint sample cards. Put the green and brown cards to use with this Paint Sample Christmas Tree craft!
A paint-chip synonym garden! The colors on the paint strip are similar, but not exactly the same, just like the synonyms themselves. Love this! Think I'll try this next year and add an antonym to the last space, as suggested by the original poster.
Use Paint Cards to List Synonyms! The main word belongs on the darkest color and students can research/fill in synonyms on the rest of the colors. This allows the teaching of colors, shades, and tints as well.
Punched Paint Chip Cards *Tip: Remove the print from the card with a white Staedtler Mars plastic eraser. The printing on most paint chips can be rubbed away with this eraser, leaving nothing but a slightly duller spot behind.
