I sewed up this little color match game for Clara to practice identifying her colors. It ended up being a great quiet game for keeping both of the girls occupied while I was in the kitchen making dinner. It is so colorful!
I sewed the color mat using pieces from fat quarters (very inexpensive), and some batting. I knew this would be too easy for Emily, but she loved the idea of being Clara’s teacher.
They found colorful items from around the house to match with the colors on the mat — some pipe cleaners, toys, large buttons, yarn, and pieces of felt. You could also use paint chips, though we didn’t have any on-hand. In mind was this sensory color match game found on Etsy.
I rollup the color mat, and put it in a mason jar along with all the matching goodies and store the game in the pantry, so it’s easy to find when I get dinner started.
Added bonus — the color mat will look so cheerful as a wall hanging in the girls’ bedroom!
