simple Sorting activity with beans/pasta/cereals

Spread the love


This activity was created by Miss M while I was busy in the kitchen work. I always use to give her some utensils and puffed rice while I cook. She loves to stir and pretend to cook using those utensils. 

One day I gave her mixture of some paste and beans, thinking this might be a change for her. She loved the new play. But to my surprise after she was bored of cooking, she started sorting out the beans and pasta. 

We can always make some fun activities with easily available household things. We don’t need to make any preparation for this activity. Attention span of toddlers is very less but this activity keeps them engaged for a long time.
