Today is Day 15 of our 31 Days of Indoor Fun for Toddlers series and we had a little fun with cereal. We used Froot Loops (don’t judge) for this super simple sorting activity. :)
Sorting is such a beneficial cognitive development activity for toddlers and preschoolers because it first requires the child to identify objects and then classify those objects based on similarities and differences. A lot of wheels turning in the brain for something that seems so simple!
After I printed out the mat, I laminated it so that we can use it over and over again!
Give your child the cereal and the mat and let him/her get busy! Inevitably, your child will end up eating just as much as she is sorting, but that is sort of the point. :)
Little Sister needed some assistance from me, but did a lot of the sorting on her own.
This simple activity offers a great opportunity to review color names.
