Here are three sorting, stacking and memorization games that are fun, but at the same time they help teach children the basic skills of organizing. Shhh, I won’t tell them if you don’t.
Sorting - Find common household objects like buttons, coins and keys and let your kids sort. They can sort by size, type and color. Have them sort the items first to see how they might arrange things. A lot of visual learners will sort by color if given the choice.
Stacking - Did you know there is a stacking sport? It’s called speed stacking and it is growing in popularity across the US. Simply put, it is a game of stacking cups extremely fast in order to build a pyramid and then taking it back down again. Kids love it but really it is teaching them some great skills like hand-eye coordination, focus, and creativity to name a few!
Memorization - My kids are loving the game Memory right now. You lay all of the cards out and turn over two at a time until you make a match. I am surprised at how well my 3 year old can recall where the hidden match is and she even shows me up every once in a while!
Teaching these basic skills early on will help your children conquer their organizing journeys in the future!
