3 Outdoor Sorting activity

“My toddler won’t sit down for an activity!” Does this sound familiar? Don’t worry. Most toddlers love to explore their surroundings and can't sit for more than 5 minutes. What works in these situations is to incorporate a lot of movement while learning age appropriate skills. Sorting is very important for cognitive development, especially for math. 

So here are 3 ways to practice sorting while you are outdoors 

1. Flower Sorting

Take an egg carton and paint it with colors of flowers and leaves available in the garden. Go for a child led walk and let them collect items for each of the colors

2. Sorting stones 

Go for a nature led walk and collect stones. come back and you can make a sorting activity with either colors or size depending on what you find     

3. Leaves Sorting 

When outside sort leaves by shape or color depending on what is available.
