Color Chart from Magazine Clippings

I came home the other day to find this beautiful piece of artwork on the floor.  My babysitter said the kids spent an enormous amount of time on it.  

They picked things out of magazines to cut out and then they glued them into a different columns, depending on color.  I thought this was pure genius since:

A) It took them a long time and kept them busy 
B) My preschooler got to work on her cutting
C) They got to work on colors

It was a win all around so I thought I'd share with you!

For more ideas on projects and games to keep your kids busy, please check out my new book, The Happy Mommy Handbook: The Ultimate How-to Guide on Keeping Your Toddlers and Preschoolers Busy, Out of Trouble and Motivated to Learn.  It is packed full of information about keeping kids busy, but in productive ways, so that they still have the opportunity to learn while you are stuck doing the dishes!  Here is one of the reviews from Amazon:

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a "Must Have" book!!!, July 9, 2012

This is truly a fantastic book! I was shocked at how many activities the authors came up with - many of which didn't even require a trip to the store for supplies! The Mom who wrote this has great stories & the Teacher has valuable's a perfect blend of unique insight. Fun (inexpensive) activities that keep my 2 kids away from the TV, what more can you ask for?!?!? This book is really helping me become a better Mom - Thank you!
