  1. Choose a paint strip and rename the different hues with your own creative names.
  2. Write them on the color sections.
  3. Go on a nature hunt to find matches to your color cards.
  4. Exchange cards to try a different color range.

Write About It!

This game will give you great new ways to describe the colors around you. Use your new color words in nature poems, riddles, or stories.
