Sorting Buttons

Written by Julia Gorham

What a fun activity to do at home with your child.

This game gives your child experience in dividing objects into sets which a good experience for mathematics.

What you need;

  1. Small containers or small dishes

  2. A set of different sized buttons in size and colour

  3. A larger bowl to place the mixed buttons

  4. A small tray

To do:

  1. Show your child how to feel the buttons and sort them by size and colour into the different bowls and dishes until they have been used up.
