We have added a new homeschooling activity to our selection. This is a color sorting activity that also works on fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination:

You need the following:

  • colored toothpicks (if you can’t find the colored kind, food coloring works great!)
  • a toothpick dispenser (the roller kind like the pic shows is nice for motor skills)
  • a salt/pepper shaker for each color toothpick (you may need to drill the holes slightly larger–or to make it more challenging, only drill some of the holes large enough, and leave the others too small for the toothpicks)

My kids love this, and will spend a half hour or more easy sorting toothpicks.
