Age 8 and up.
1+ players.
By Lea Redmond
Composing a poem is easy and fun with this colorful and creative game! Players draw handfuls of paint chips and a prompt card, then rearrange the chips to create spontaneous poems out of the color names, with results that range from profound to hilarious. Created by bestselling author Lea Redmond, this quirky party game is also the perfect way to bust through writer's block.

From Lea:
Let the paint chips be your muse! With a pile of paint chips at your fingertips, the poems practically write themselves. Go ahead, chase some rainbows. (Scroll down for a handful of example rounds, with commentary!)

• Draw a prompt card.
• Consult your colors.
• Make a “poem” (I treat that term lightly and loosely!)
• Share what you made! Reflect. Express. Laugh.
• Play another round!
