Sorting by Color

A few days ago we saw a rainbow after a spring storm.  I’m sure it wasn’t the first one he’s seen, but it’s the first one that made a big impression on him.  I’ve added a few rainbow activities for the last part of this month and our study of the weather.

To make this one, dig through your craft bins and locate those colored pom poms.  Though I’d love to use some creative and more attractive containers, these leftovers from my homemade baby food making days work nicely.  Add colored construction paper circles in the bottoms of the small bowls and a pair of tongs, and you have a sorting and fine motor activity.  This activity has been on our shelf for two days now and I’m sure that Carter chooses to complete it a few times a day.  I woke this morning to find him sitting as his small table sorting pom poms.


Enjoy and thank you for your comments!
