Since we are gearing up for our "math festival" of ideas I had to remind you of this oldie but goodie you can grab for a dollar at our favorite shopping haven- yup, Target! The best part is that they come in a lot of different colors which makes them even better! I also bought colored straws to cut up and have the kids sort to make patterns. These become necklaces and bracelets when you string them on a pipe cleaner and my kids never outgrow their passion for these!
What else can you sort?
