Cereal Sorting

ages 3-6


Cereal in different shapes; piece of paper

Activity Detail

In a ziploc bag, put a handful of round Cheerios, square Chex, and rectangle Frosted Mini-Wheats. Divide a sheet of paper into 3 sections- circle, square, and rectangle. Have your child sort each piece of cereal onto the correct column of their paper. You can discuss which group has the most, least, fewer, more, or equal. You can count the cereal in each group. Older children can make patterns like circle, circle, square, etc.

I like that this activity uses things I already have at home. Great for 3 year olds and older 2 year olds who are new to learning shapes.
