Ruler (18 inches)
During a visit to the dollar store I picked up counting cubes. I figured P could play with them at the table and at some point sort them by color. During a time of him playing I came up with the idea to make cards with the number on them with the same colors of the cube. Duringthis stage of his life he can stack them and even match them to the right color as long as I ask him too. This activity can grow with him because he can make a pattern and then match the number of blocks with the number on the card.
Not included in the picture: I also brought a six cupcake pan to use for sorting.
