I’ve been noticing that J has gotten a bit more orderly in his play lately (lining up his cars, stacking his blocks by color, etc.), so I thought I’d try another sorting activity.
I half way expected this to be an epic failure since he was not at all interested in sorting before, but I thought we’d try again…and I’m so glad I did!
I found this plastic tray at the Dollar Store (maybe my new favorite place BTW), and I knew that I needed it. It is great for sorting and I plan on using it for 1 to 1 correspondence activities later on. Plus, you can’t beat $1!
I filled each outside compartment of the tray with three different types of pasta and three different types of beans. I then mixed some all together in the middle.
All I did was place it in front of J and he knew exactly what to do! It was so fun to watch!
Have you done any fun sorting games with your kids?
