Children in their preschool years learn to distinguish between big and small, and then to put things in order from smallest to biggest. Even simple toys like stacking cups introduce toddlers to this concept.
You can create this craft from momstown with your child using different sized circles – either precut or ones you cut yourself!
What you need:
Talk about the different sizes of circles with your child and help them sort them into three piles. Point and name them – big, medium, small.
Then, you can build your caterpillars using the three different sizes. Use marker to add eyes and antennae, and label them big, medium, small on the page! Try this cute online game that allows kids to sort from smallest to biggest. Simple but fun!
