Preschooler Cooking - Fine Motor Skills Colour Sort

We have been asked to make some gingerbreads for a party, in a blue and red colour scheme. Of course, I couldn't find any red pearls to decorate the blue icing, so I bought a rainbow pack instead. Miss 3's job (after washing her hands) was to pick out all of the red pearls and sort them from the other colours.

This is a deceptively hard task for a three-year-old, combining fine motor skills and colour recognition. She did a brilliant job.

And the biscuits are beautiful!
