Make counting and sorting fun by using clothespins
What You Need:
- 9 Clothespins
- A clean gallon size plastic jug with a wide mouth
- 3 colors of Jumbo crayons or washable markers
What To Do:
- Help your child color the sides of the clothes pins, three of each color.
- Ask her to drop the clothespins in the container, while you’re counting one to nine.
- Ask her to empty the clothespins out of the container – does she reach in with her hand or does she turn the container over to empty it out? Talk about how she decided to empty it and whether there is another possible way.
- Now ask her to drop only the “red” pins in the container, counting each red clothespin as it drops, 1, 2, 3.
- Repeat for each of the other two colors.
- Continue the game as long as she’s interested and include more talk about numbers, colors, and the sounds.
