Preschool sorting and math activity
Skandha has always been my “Kitchen raider“. He had & has (yes still continues) great fun playing with utensils and cutlery! We play lots of kitchen games like – matching lids and boxes, scooping and pouring and water play in the sink. These wonderful activities keep him busy while I fix the dinner and do dishes.
We have been playing cutlery sorting since toddler days. Taking about cutlery I cannot help but brag about our LO here Skandha has been eating by himself since he turned 15 months old and knows to handle spoon and fork pretty well. His paternal grandparents visited us when Skandha was around 20 months and were awestruck to see him feed himself and use the cutlery with ease!
Now that LO enjoys counting and math activities, I wanted to take the simple “cutlery sorting” to preschool level. We played Count and Place game too.
Activity 1: Sorting cutlery. Place paper cut-out of spoon, fork and knife in 3 compartments (or 3 trays). Child should match the cutlery with the paper cut-out in each compartment.
Aim: matching and sorting.
Activity 2: Write numbers before before each paper cutlery and ask the child to count and place corresponding number of spoons, forks and knifes.
Aim: Preschool counting.
