Yesterday I posted about Matching Activities, and today I have 41 Sorting Activities. Some of the sorting and matching activities are interchangeable, but for the most part I tried to have new activities on this post. Like I said in my last post, many of these ideas you can definitely make into DIY projects. Click on the pictures for the amazon info.
|Bears with Cups (I usually use Easter Egg Dye Cups)|
|Beginning Letter Sound|
|File Folder Games|
|What Goes Together|
|Shades of Color|
10 More Ideas
- Seasonal activities or clothes-take pictures, or find flash cards to sort.
- Kids - Find pictures of different kids and sort by different characteristics (i.e., boys and girls, short and tall, long and short hair, color of clothes, happy and sad, etc.)
- Texture - Find different objects around the house and sort them according to how they feel.
- Quantity - Take pictures of objects, and sort by how many objects are in the picture.
- Size - Sort random objects by size
- Weight - Light as a feather or Heavy as a brick
- Smell - Make smelling bottles, and they can sort according to what they think they are.
- Likes/Dislikes - Have your child make piles of pictures of things they like and don't like.
- Hot/Cold - Microwave objects and put objects in the freezer, then when it's time for the activity, they can be sorted.
- Money/Wallet - Put the paper money in a wallet, and the coins in a coin purse.
