Egg in the nest sorting game

Egg in the nest sorting game

Yesterday I made my own Easter grass and I am using part of the colorful shredded grass to make a sorting game for the kids…

I started by gluing a handful of colorful shredded grass to paper plates. This gives a little bit of a bird nest look but with lots of spring colors…

I will set out the colorful “bird nests” along with a basket of plastic eggs that are the same color for the children to use as a sorting game…

I am thinking that I may even get some smaller paper plates and invite the children to make their own colorful bird nests…

The remaining shredded grass will be used for sensory play along with more plastic eggs and other items for sensory play. The children can mix up all the colors as they wish in the sensory table…

Don’t you just love all the spring colors?

    What a great way to create a sorting game, the colors, the eggs, what fun. My daughter just looked over my shoulder and said “we should do that for Easter!” Well, I guess I need to see if our shredder still works. 🙂

    I love it Jackie – your daughter is a smart girl:) I hope that shredder works.

    I have way to many plastic eggs – if you lived close by I would just give you some:)
