Rainbow Car Sorting Activity
My son wanted to play cars together. I wanted to do something somewhat educational. This is what we came up with.
I got out a great striped placemat I'd gotten from Target on clearance. I know its not a true rainbow but it worked well and its what we had on hand.
We search for his cars in the toy box and sorted them by color on the placemat.
As we worked, we made predictions about which colors would have the most and least cars. We modified our predictions as we got further through his car collection. Then we counted each color vehicle to see if we were right. (For some reason he's short on pink and purple cars... hmmm).
He had so much fun that he started sorting his bugs, dinosaurs and plastic lizards. He's already asked if we can do it again. I'm guessing it will be a repeat activity here on the gravelly road.
