Paint Chip Stories
Paint chip samples often have interesting names. Some of these names are so descriptive, they could become elements in a story! Take a quick trip to the hardware store and pick up a handful of paint chips. Then, using the paint chips as inspiration, invite your kids to write some clever stories.
The list below also contains actual names of paint colors. If you can’t make it to the paint department, simply have each child choose five paint chip names from the list and write a descriptive story using all five. Alternatively, visit this Benjamin Moore Color Families resource to browse through the amazing selection of paint chip names and pick five favorites as a story springboard.
Example: Copper Mountain, Tent, Campground, Moon, Happy Camper
