Color sorting and froot loops rainbow!
The idea of froot loop color sorting and rainbow was born just after we finished a yummy evening snack Lil one had cold and cough and was too tired for outdoor play. Just then I thought of this simple activity to engage him for little while as well as help him cheer up, a little bit!
Activity: Sort and collect like-colored froot loops. Once done trace the curved lines with froot loops to form a colorful rainbow.
Aim: Color recognition and sorting. Tracing the curved line, a pre-writing skill.
Tracing line is the first step in learning to write. It improves the hand eye co-ordination. Start from straight dotted lines and then move on with slanted, zig-zag and curved lines. I have already posted about the free “trace the lines worksheets“. You can download them here.
Below is another free worksheet – tracing curved lines. You may let your child trace the curved lines with color pencils/crayons or use froot loops (as shown above)/ pom-poms / marshmallows to form a rainbow!!
