This Bottle Cap Sorting activity is a great way to reuse caps while encouraging color recognition. Sorting is a beneficial cognitive development exercise because it requires a child to differentiate between colors and then group like colors together.
Here’s what you’ll need: various colors of bottle caps and a muffin tin…and a willing participant. :)
1. Lay out the materials and then give your child instructions.
2. Start sorting!
*This activity should be monitored at all times, especially if using smaller caps. This activity is not recommended for children 3 and under (or those who still place objects in their mouths).
