This colour book is a wonderful way for toddlers to learn their colours!

To make this fun colour book I used:


Note: I happened to have these paint swatches already but if you are planning to make this book then please ask your DIY store first before taking the swatches, or you could even ask if they have any out of date swatches you could have.Homemade Colour Book from Paint Swatches


I used two swatches for each colour, and glued them back to back to form a book layout. I decided on this style rather than flash card style (with the same colour on the front and back of one card). Then I found some patterned paper to make a front and back “cover”.

To make them into a book I punched two holes in each card and threaded two rings through (I used the ones usually used for keyrings). Then I decorated each pa
