You may have seen the Lego Color Sorting Activity I shared, and if it was a hit with your kiddos, they are going to love this idea, too!
All you need to get started are some colorful plates. Any kind will do! Multi-colored paper plates would work well (THESE could be awesome, too!), but we have loved using our colorful plates by Replay. Have you seen these fantastic little plates? They are perfect for little hands.
Color Sorting on Plates: Here’s How We Do It
Step #1: Set multi-colored plates out on a flat surface, and discuss the different colors with your child. There’s no pressure to use any certain colors – any variety works perfectly!
Step #2: Encourage your little ones to go throughout their learning environment (This could be a play room, a homeschooling space, an art area, wherever!) and gather items of all different color – placing the objects on their corresponding plate.
BLUE objects on the BLUE plate
GREEN objects on the GREEN plate
YELLOW objects on the YELLOW plate
RED objects on the RED plate
ORANGE objects on the ORANGE plate
You get the idea!
Consider your kiddos: Would it be helpful to go ahead and gather the items for them ahead of time?
Want to extend this activity? Maybe you could incorporate a game of I Spy! in to the fun.
Want to sort specific types of items? Maybe just colorful blocks? Or just plastic animals? Or just plastic play food? The options are endless.
