Celebrate Spring with this fun sorting activity!

Yesterday I made my own Easter grass and I am using part of the colorful shredded grass to make a sorting game for the kids…

Preparing the Materials

I started by gluing a handful of colorful shredded grass to paper plates. This gives a little bit of a birds nest look but with lots of spring colors…

Sorting by Color

I will set out the colorful “bird nests” along with a basket of plastic eggs that are the same color for the children to use as a sorting game…

An Invitation to Create

I am thinking that I may even get some smaller paper plates and invite the children to make their own colorful bird nests…

Sensory Exploration

The remaining shredded grass will be used for sensory play along with more plastic eggs and other items for sensory play. The children can mix up all the colors as they wish in the sensory table…

Don’t you just love all the spring colors?

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
