Using Recycled Paint Sample Cards

This afternoon I helped my daughter with a baby shower and remembered how I would like to try using recycled paint sample cards to create different shapes with students.  Most of the time I just use large scraps of construction paper that I scrounge up in classrooms or school workrooms, but these paint sample colors are much more vivid.

Students can decide which colors to use, determine how to compile the pieces to create a design and then attach the finished designs to an inexpensive piece of yarn or rope.

It'll be a fun, alerting activity to practice tracing, scissor skills, using glue and planning how to space the designs on the yarn or rope.
