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!
And, he had so much fun doing it!
Have you done any fun sorting games with your kids?
I watched Tyler sorting out the blocks I brought when I watched him Sunday night. I handed him the tub of blocks and when I turned back around, they were all sorted by shape and color. What a great, simple activity! Good job!
That’s cool. My 2 yr old loves to sort too. I should try this.
WOW! I’ve just taken a quick peek at your home page. SOOO much inspiration here! The jars, the fruit organizer tray, the ocean bin, the rice krispies! I think I’m already in love with your blog!!
