Color Learning Book

On Monday I shared a few projects with you that I made using the new “possibilities” line from Lifestyle Crafts -
and today as promised I am sharing a little tutorial about a simple little book I made for my son to learn his colors -

The die I used was the nesting octagon -

I simply gathered scrapbook paper from my supply and used the die to cut them out. I chose10 basic colors that would be easy to learn – red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, pink, brown, grey and black.

I cut out the colors using different sizes of octagons – and then cut out the name of their color in the octagon just one size smaller.

I glued them on…

Since the shapes nest you can only see the colored paper when it is put together.

After having used it a few times I think that I am going to laminate it and use a jump ring so the papers are easier to flip through and hold up a bit better but for now it works out great and my kiddo loves when show him the different colors.

A simple project but for kids – sometimes simple is the way to go!

This was such a smart project. And the step by step was quite helpful. The octagons could easily be incorporated into other projects. Thanks.
