Frugal Friday - Homemade Shape Sorter


Shape sorters are a favorite toy for many kids. I have created a simple shape sorter using supplies you already have around your house. You need an empty wipes container and the link toys, we had gotten lots of these when the baby was born.

Now you can have hours of fun filling and dumping the container. Now that my daughter is a little older we practice sorting them by colors when we put them in

Skills learned by playing with shape sorters:

-fine motor skills

-hand-eye coordination

-trial and error problem solving

-cause and effect

-sorting

-counting

-you can practice taking turns

-make up your own game and have fun
