In this post you could see how the hamster mom (that would be me), has gathered a remarkable amount of bottle caps. So it was the time to figure out what to do with them.
Learning colors with plastic bottle caps
First we learned some colors. I collected all the caps in one basket:
Then I took five little boxes, of the same color as the caps so then we sorted them by color. Since I couldn't find the boxes in all the necessary colors, I wrapped them in gift wrapping paper scraps.
Kids had a lot of fun and also learned something, and it was very easy for me to prepare it!
And they were also playing by mixing the caps, moving them from one container to another, in no particular order and meaning. I dare to say they liked this part the best.
A memory game with bottle caps
Before starting, wash all the caps (since they may contains some food leftovers). We all know how important the sensory play is, so this could be a good start and to introduce something like that into everyday activities. An additional plus: it is super fun kids.
When you wash and dry them, you can start adding stickers.
I made one set for the Older and one for the Younger:
But in the end, the sisters mixed it all together and played:
I'd like to thank the East Coast Mommy for this great idea.
Try it, it's super easy and we had lots of fun while playing it!
