‘I love using all the toys and tools we have around the house to help my kids work on a skill in a fun way. C, my son loves everything in its place and so he loves sorting. He has sorted paper clips and a few other things around. Today I will share with you his tangram color sort.
This activity was so quick and simple to put together and it allowed me to focus on J while she was doing her work. The best part was that C loved it so much that once he sorted all the pieces, he simply emptied the cups and started all over again.
