Creative Play Challenge Day 2: “Sort” Out Your Holiday!
November 27, 2012 at 10:05 AM

Starting around 18 months, toddlers begin to notice differences and commonalities between objects-which means it's time to sort and group!Today, take some of your holiday decorations, food items, or gifts, and work together to "sort" them by color, size, shape, texture, or type. For older kids, increase the complexity of the items you sort or the categories you sort them in.

Share with us the combinations you created in the comments below.

(Tip: Sorting Cubes and Block Assortments are both great toys to help build these sorting skills.)

    We sorted the ornaments before putting them on the tree.  The small ornaments were for their individual trees in the bedroom, and the large ornaments were for the tree in the living room.
