Materials:


Items likely found at home


Summary:


I set up a color sorting activity with my preschooler. It was super easy to set up. I lined up six cups, one for each color of the rainbow. I gave her an Easy-Grip Safety Tweezer and instruct her to sort the cereal into the cups by color. You could definitely do this without the tweezers and just let your child use their fingers to sort. For really young children, it’s great practice using their pincer grip (thumb and forefinger).

Items likely found at home but may require some purchases

Summary:


Hammering golf tees into styrofoam blocks has been a favorite in my preschool classroom for years. We love to do this during our construction theme, but will have it available other times during the year, too. It can be done during centers time (as part of your table activities) or during small groups. At home, this is a nice activity to do at the kitchen table.
