Sorting: Colors

Sorting Objects: 2-5 yrs. old
"Sorting objects according to size, shape, color, or ohter physical properties is a wonderful activity that challenges young children to pay close attention and to make some logical choices" (Tim Seldin)
I had purchased some felt for a project. My oldest daughter found it and decided to lay it out and sort her blocks by color. She did this without anyone around. I thought it was a hoot.

So the next day I got out more of a variety of colors and we sorted buttons.
My youngest daughter (24mo.) didn't love the activity. But I know my oldest daughter did at this age. I didn't push it. She enjoyed playing with her buttons and did try sorting a bit.
