Now that our 5-yr old is back in school (Kindergarten!), I'm getting lots of one-on-one time with our 2-yr old. Which is why I love these blogs that are devoted to activities you can do at home with your little kids. Some of my favorites are: The Activity Mom, Counting Coconuts, and The Crafty Crow.
After she'd finished sorting all the beads by color, I drew the shapes of the beads on the bottom of the cups and had her sort the shapes.
She had a great time... Happy sorting!
