This week, ask your child for "help" sorting cereal. There are a few different ways you can go about this, I suggest starting with whatever cereal you have at home!
Try some of these variations on this activity:
- Ask your child to sort colorful cereal, such as Trix or Froot Loops, by color
- Ask your child to sort a cereal with different shaped pieces, such as Kashi Original, by shape
- Mix two cereals together and ask your child to sort them
- Just have your child transfer cereal back and forth if they are too young for the sorting concept
- Have them use their hands, tongs, or a spoon for lots of motor skills practice
- If there is a cereal your child typically doesn't like, try to include that in this game because it's a good way to expose them to the cereal without the pressure of eating it
I normally try to stay away from sugary cereals, but they would actually be perfect for this activity because the sugar will get your kids' hands all sticky. But don't go out of your way to buy sugary cereals if you don't have that on hand!
Don't forget to use the hashtag #52weeksofsensory and tag @highchairchronicles if you post any pictures on social media!
