Color Sorting

Time

  • 10 to 15 minutes

Materials

  • Several small plastic bowls
  • Small colored objects, or colored table blocks

Directions

Learning to sort colors takes time, but this is a good way to begin practicing decision making. Put the plastic bowls on the table and assist with sorting a few of the colored objects by size or color into the bowls.

Extensions

  • Talk about the colors as you sort, using their names.
  • Work together to sort all of one color for you, and all of another color for your child.
  • Turn the bowls upside down and ask your child which color is under each.
