Yesterday I posted about Matching Activities, and today I have a list of Sorting Activities. Some of the sorting and matching activities are interchangeable, but for the most part I tried to have new activities on this post. Like I said in my last post, many of these ideas you can definitely make into DIY projects.

Alphabet Soup Sorters-this could be an easy DIY if you have containers you need to repurpose
Food Groups-Melissa Doug Toys have great quality. I like the wood toys.
Sorting Nests-sort by color, size
Animal Counters-there are a lot of different types of animals you can get. Sort by color, animal, size.
Veggie Farm Sorting Set-Sort by colors, numbers, or shapes
Sort in the Box-sort by shape, pattern, animals
- Seasonal activities or clothes-take pictures, or find flash cards to sort.
- Kids – Find pictures of different kids and sort by different characteristics (i.e., boys and girls, short and tall, long and short hair, color of clothes, happy and sad, etc.)
- Texture – Find different objects around the house and sort them according to how they feel.
- Quantity – Take pictures of objects, and sort by how many objects are in the picture.
- Size – Sort random objects by size
- Weight – Light as a feather or Heavy as a brick
- Smell – Make smelling bottles, and they can sort according to what they think they are.
- Likes/Dislikes – Have your child make piles of pictures of things they like and don’t like.
- Hot/Cold – Microwave objects and put objects in the freezer, then when it’s time for the activity, they can be sorted.
- Money/Wallet – Put the paper money in a wallet, and the coins in a coin purse.
I’d love to hear some of your ideas! Post them in the comment section.
