Learning Activity: Sorting with colored erasers
Lately my almost 3 year old son has been restless and I'm trying to come up with some fun and maybe somewhat challenging activities to keep him busy! I have seen lots of people using muffin tins so I found these dollar store colored erasers and decided to do a little sorting activity. First we put one eraser in each cup. Then I had him put 2 erasers in each cup.
Then I had him put 2 in each cup that were the same color. I also had him put the same color in 3 cups in a row. At the end I had him match up all the colors. After that I let him do whatever he wanted. Can you give me some more ideas? He is very quick and bright and I want to give him more! I like this activity because we learned about sorting, colors, counting, fine motor skills, reasoning and spacial concepts.
