DIY Colour Tablets

May 11, 2018


Here is an easy way to make your own colour tablets:



1) paint swatches (I got mine from Home Depot) 

2) wood tiles

3) Mod Podge

4) paint brush


I cut the paint swatches so the were the length of the squares and a little less than the width (2 of each colour).  I was able to get two colour pieces out of one paint sample.  Then I added a generous amount of Mod Podge to each square and placed the colour sample on top.  Once it dried, I put a coat over the colour sample and wood.  That's all!


Layla has been using them multiple times a day.  When reading books, sometimes she goes to the box and takes out the colour tablets to match with the colours in the story, which I just love. 


For under $5 and 30 minutes, you too can make some colour tablets!
