Toddler Play: Colour Sort Mail Box

As a result of our renovations, we have accumulated a large collection of colour sample cards. We used these to make a colour sorting game for the girls.

I cut slots into an old shoe box and wrote colours on each slot. Each of the girls was then given a stack of colour cards to "mail" into the correct slot (they're very fond of mailing letters at the moment).

We had to add in another row of slots down the middle eventually, because some of the cards, like white and orange, couldn't be easily mailed into the original slots.

A cheap and easy way for toddlers to practice their colours.

I've written lots of other posts on toddler art, cooking and play - do have a browse.
