Sorting is great for fine motor skill and problem solving cognitive development.
I bought this tray at a local senior center consignment shop.
The pail, the heart shaped container and the Xs and Os are from Target. I had the mini tongs.
I placed all the Xs and Os into a Valentine theme pail.
Then I showed him the activity. Pick up the tongs, grab an “O” and place it in one side of the heart container.
The same for the “X”s.
This activity helps young hands develop fine motor skills and problem solving. I love simple activities that go a long way.
