Creative Play Challenge Day 2: “Sort” Out Your Holiday!

Posted by   + Show Post

Starting around 18 months, toddlers begin to notice differences and commonalities between objects-which means it's time to sort and group!Today, take some of your holiday decorations, food items, or gifts, and work together to "sort" them by color, size, shape, texture, or type. For older kids, increase the complexity of the items you sort or the categories you sort them in.

Share with us the combinations you created in the comments below.

(Tip: Sorting Cubes and Block Assortments are both great toys to help build these sorting skills.)

:P

my son has autism so its a peace of mind kinda thing for him. match box cars in one bin, thomas trains one bag, dinosuar trains another etc. and god help you if you mix them or one strays to the wrong bin lol

Quoting Angel_Red7:

Lol I thought I was the only one that keeps toys sorted by groups. I keep toys that way because I mentally feel better but it makes clean up time fun with my 23 month old.

Quoting lasombrs:

we do this daily! We keep all the toys sorted by groups in our house
