AHHH! I love this idea.  Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip. Hang all of their strips on the door and they can use those words to help "make their writing colorful!"
