I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the fact that my baby is now officially a toddler. Where did the time go? And while we’re on the subject, how does that even happen?

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences.

This month we were thrilled to receive one of the new Experience Toddler Curriculum kits too!

Experience Toddler is seriously all kinds of awesome! It’s the same Mother Goose Time that we all know and love, but for even littler kids! Is that even a word? Lol…

Both the toddler curriculum as well as the preschool curriculum are wonderful!

I thought it’d be fun to try out the Sorting & Shapes Color Buckets activity with baby girl. She’s approximately 15 months old right now, so a little younger than the 18 months-3 years that this particular curriculum was designed for, but that’s okay.

This month’s color are pink and yellow, so I put the cups and the pompoms in our large sensory bin and you know in typical toddler fashion she decided that she would sit in the activity tub and play with her manipulatives. Why am I not surprised?

Quick & Easy Color Buckets Color Sorting Toddler Activity

Set Up

Set out the pompoms and the buckets (sorting cups).

Play

Young Toddler

Show children a yellow pompom and encourage them to find a similar colored pompom. Invite them to drop them into the yellow bucket. Continue to fill up the bucket and then repeat with pink. 

Older Toddler

Set out a bowl filled with both the yellow and pink pompoms. Invite children to pick up one pompom, toss it into the matching colored bucket. If it misses, try again. Repeat. 

 Assess

Young Toddler

When shown a yellow pompom, does the child find the matching yellow bucket? 

Older Toddler

Does the child sort a bowl of pompoms by color and toss only the yellow pompoms in the yellow bucket?

I love that this curriculum differentiates between Young Toddler and Older Toddler because let’s face it, a lot of development happens in that year or two. I can’t even fathom how much baby girl has changed just in the last few months. It really is crazy to think about!

We’re for sure excited to try out some of the other activities that were included in this month’s Experience Toddler curriculum kit and hopefully we’ll be able to share at least one more this month so don’t forget to stop by next week!
