My boys had so much fun playing with this water bottle color sorting game. It was a fun way to practice identifying colors and practice our counting. I even made some free printables to make creating this game super easy on you. All you need is some old water bottles and color coordinating pom-poms.
There are several different ways you can play with these color sorting water bottles, and they can be fun for all ages!
What you need:
– Empty water bottles
– Printer and ink
The how to:
I’ve broken it all down by age with all the different ways you can play this game with your little ones! *This game does have small pieces so make sure your child is always supervised when playing!*
Focus on colors. Give your child one yellow bottle and all the yellow pom-pom’s. Show them how you can put the pom-pom’s in the bottle. Let them squeeze the bottle and hear the noise it makes. Let them shake the bottle and watch all the yellow pom-pom’s jump around. Doing one color at a time and repeating the name of the color to your child as they play.
Line up your water bottles and place your pom-pom’s on the floor. Start by looking for all the blue pom-pom’s and count together as they place each one inside the correct water bottle. Move to the next color, collect those pom-pom’s and again count again as your child places each one inside the bottle.
24 months and older:
Line up your water bottles and place your pom-pom’s on the floor. Allow your child to short through the pile and place each each pom-pom in the correct bottle. Shake the bottle up and count your pom-pom’s. When your done turn the bottle over and shake it until all your pom-pom’s have fallen out or use fingers to pinch them out (great fine motor activity!).
2 or more children:
If you have 2 or more children playing turn it into a game for two! Time each child as they sort thought the pom-poms and sort them into the correct bottle. The one with the shortest time wins! You can also print out the color labels with out numbers. Assign each child a color and scatter your pom-pom’s on the floor. Count down from 3 and see who can collect their assigned color and place it into the bottle the quickest!
This activity promotes learning though play, helps your child identify colors, practice counting, and work on fine motor skills.
