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!
