A new preschool busy bag?
But, Ami, you don't have any preschoolers.
Yes. And yes.
I will never remember the tale of this preschool busy bag beyond the basics:
The bag was made. Simon played. And that was five years ago. Apparently, the poor photos have been sitting in my images folder for a long, long time just waiting to make an appearance on the blog. Today is their day.
This preschool hands-on math activity helps your student learn to sort and discriminate shapes and colors.

Bag of Big Buttons, Assorted Colors and Shapes
I used Roylco Buttons; you will have enough left over for other Busy Bags
1. Sort through your buttons and choose five colors. I was able to find five colors that had four matching shapes (square, flower, circle, heart).
2. Color the small rectangles at the top of page to represent the colored buttons you have chosen. I chose red, orange, blue, yellow, and pink.
3. Show your child how to put the correct color buttons in the right columns. If that version is too simple, place all the buttons in the first column for your student. Show her how to complete the graph by matching the shape (on the left) with the color (at the top). If she is ready for this game, you may want to trace the shapes on the left column so the activity can be done independently.
4. Grab a Ziploc and bag it! Store it until the next time.
