Did you know that sorting helps your child’s brain development? Plus kids love organizing the world around them, so make it a fun learning game with our printable color sorting pages. Teach kids their colors and help them learn to sort items and group them into similarities like color! This is a great activity for toddlers, preschoolers, and even kindergarten aged kids.
Curious Neuron says: “Sorting objects by size, shape or colour, is a developmental milestone for cognition (learning, thinking, problem-solving). By age 2, children begin to understand the concept of sorting. By age 4, a child will be able to identify some colours and sort.”
If your child is kindergarten age or younger, sorting activities should be a regular in their weekly schedule. You can make your own sorting sheet with some markers and cardboard or download our printable activity sheet to add to your activity bin.
The materials you will need are a color sorting print, laminator + sheets (optional if wanting to use it multiple times) and some colorful objects around the house. Here are some ideas:
Place the items in a bowl and let them start sorting. Curious Neuron also says, “Sorting helps children develop EXECUTIVE FUNCTION SKILLS, important brain skills that help with memory, attention and problem-solving.”
