Paint Chip Idea #40,248,788

To be honest, there are a couple of things I don't do really well (being tall, being a Louisville fan, and loving the color orange-sorry Rachael Ray).

Boredom is one of those things I just can't do. 


So I present to you my discoveries of June 23, 2012:

If you're like me and you've got some paint chips because the crafts on Pinterest have all but dared you to leave them at Lowe's, I discovered:

 A $1 recipe card box from the Dollar Tree makes a perfect container for the paint chips with a window.




Here's a way to practice K CC 2: Count forward beginning from a given number within a known sequence. I took paint chips, a Sharpie (my favorite thing in the world, next to chocolate and Post-its) and went to work. I plan to laminate them the next time I pop in to school.






I love all the creative things you can do with paint chips.  Do you have a favorite?
