Color Matching Boys

I found yet another craft to work on...

This is a great idea for a wooden toy.  It's a great color matching activity, children have to use small motor skills and even helps with recognizing color words.
I got the idea from here.  I changed it a bit by painting the little guys all one color and I added the color name to each the boy and the pot.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the vinyl for the color names and it worked so slick!  After painting I put on the word, then I covered them with Mod Podge and a spray  of acrylic sealer.  I ordered more so I could make them for some more gifts (now that I know how easy they are), of course I ordered the right sized boy and the wrong sized pots... oops.  Didn't get them all done! 

We gave them to this sweet little boy for his 2nd birthday!
