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.)

    Does it disqualify me for the prize that I don't have anything to sort and my kiddos are older?

    I do this with my 2 and 4 year old with mega bloks. I'll have to try it with holiday items.

    We sorted Christmas decorations, since we put up 2 trees we sorted them first by trees then we sorted them by color (my son loves blue so he puts all the blue ornaments on the tree) and we sorted by breakable and non breaable ornaments.
