Learn colors, practice sorting, and do a little bit of counting with this simple and fun springtime activity.

How We Did It

Spring Color Sorting and Counting Activity
We started out our activity by gathering some colored paper, a variety of different colored pom poms and an empty muffin tin. I cut some circles out of each color of paper then filled each section of the muffin tin with a different colored circle.

Next I mixed up all the pom poms. My 3-year-old began sorting them, by placing each color pom pom in the section of the muffin tin that had the matching color.

She really enjoyed this, and was so proud of all her sorted pom poms! After we sorted colors for a while we wanted to try some counting.

I took all the circles out of the muffin tin and drew a different number of Easter eggs on each one. I then placed them back in the muffin tin face up. (Leave the backside of the circles blank so you can flip the circles over and do the color sorting activity again.)

My daughter had fun counting the Easter eggs, then finding the correct color and number of pom poms to place in each section of the muffin tin.
