Your young kiddos will love to practice colour recognition and sorting with this fun(and rewarding) jelly beans busy bag!
We are continuing with our A-Z Busy Bag Series and today we have the letter J! J is for Jelly Beans!
This is such a simple idea: sorting jelly beans according to color, with or without the tweezers.
- Jelly beans
- A container with compartments(I used a pillbox)
- Stickers and markers
I first colored the stickers the same color as the jelly beans and stuck them on the inside of the lids of the pillbox:
I thought my 3 year old can sort the beans without the tweezer, but he wanted to try it. It is a tiny bit tricky, you have to grab it just right, but he got it right! This bit is great for fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
The best part after the sorting: you can eat your jelly beans! He is telling me that she(look at that smug face) is eating it all!
A fun, easy busy bag idea to put together when traveling! The incentive of completing the sorting-priceless!
