Magnetic Color Sort

Sensory, color sorting, counting and science all in one simple activity! Buying your toddler a color sorting activity for their second birthday is one of the best gift ideas. The girls loved using the magnetic wands and watching the color chips “jump” up to the wand. We put out our color sorting bowls where the girls picked off the chips and put them in their matching bowls. My 3 year old especially loved counting the chips and seeing which color had the most. This activity is so simple to pull out and we’ll do it over and over again. (find colored rice instructions here).

Our activities often turn into dramatic play afterwards. She made me some oatmeal with one colored chip as my spoon.
