You may have seen this activity for Day 5 of the Learning Without Worksheets challenge floating around Facebook — it’s kind of gone viral — with good reason. This is an activity you gotta try!
It’s so simple — adds a learning element — and kids absolutely love it.
Here’s today’s sensory activity with a learning twist: Color Sorting Sensory Bag
You’ll need a few supplies for this one – gallon size freezer baggy (2 to double bag), permanent markers, colored buttons, dish soap or hair gel
Here are some tips for this activity —
- Younger kids? Ditch the circles to move the buttons into and just let them move them around. Talk about the colors.
- Older kids can be timed to see how fast it can be done, or have them trace the circle with the buttons.
- You can erase the permanent marker with a Magic Eraser and draw new sections to sort the buttons into.
