Sorting and Walking

Sorting games are a fantastic way to help kids learn how to differentiate shapes, combine shapes and movement to help them grow their muscles.

At OMO, we believe that every stain represents an important experience - mud stains are the stamp of adventure, grass stains are the sign of exploration and fruit stains are the aftermath of discovery. Encourage your kids to get messy with our fun activities for happy, healthy, confident kids. We'll be there to sort out the dirty clothes afterwards.

Sorting and Walking

This fun and straightforward activity combine shapes and movement to help grow your child's muscles and teach them about shapes.

What you'll need:

What to do:

  1. Collect a few everyday objects that look like shapes (e.g. eraser for rectangle, the lid of glue for circle, etc.). Sit together on a grassy area with your child and help them identify each shape. 

  2. Let your child choose a shape and show them how they should move from one side of the grass to the other side, dropping each shape off. Try to connect each shape with a different movement (e.g. rectangle = frog jump or circle = crab walk). 

  3. Carry on playing until all the objects have been dropped off on the other side of the grassy area. 

  4. If you have more than one child, you can play this activity in teams and make it a competition.
