Another sorting activity

We have added a new homeschooling activity to our selection. This is a color sorting activity that also works on fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination:

You need the following:
  • colored toothpicks (if you can't find the colored kind, food coloring works great!)
  • a toothpick dispenser (the roller kind like the pic shows is nice for motor skills)
  • a salt/pepper shaker for each color toothpick (you may need to drill the holes slightly larger--or to make it more challenging, only drill some of the holes large enough, and leave the others too small for the toothpicks)

My kids love this, and will spend a half hour or more easy sorting toothpicks.
