Teach toddlers color sorting quickly & easily with this fun Color Buckets Color Sorting Toddler Activity! You’re definitely not going to want to miss it!
It’s a great day, don’t you think? Today is the day that baby girl started working on her very own toddler curriculum kit with this Quick & Easy Color Sorting Toddler Activity. Who would’ve thought?
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?

If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know that we’re using Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for preschool homeschool and it’s been such a huge blessing to us. 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…
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 out the pompoms and the buckets (sorting cups).
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.
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.
When shown a yellow pompom, does the child find the matching yellow bucket?
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!

As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids. #mgtblogger
