Un-Toys: Loose Part Sort

Un-Toys: Loose Part Sort

What is an “Un-Toy”? At 4C Play & Learn we refer to things that most people have around the house that can be turned into play materials as “Un-Toys”. These inexpensive items can provide hours of fun for children while they practice important developmental skills. This month: Loose Part Sort

Divided deli tray (veggie, fruit, cheese, meat)
Variety of small items (We use plastic chips, dice, orphaned game pieces, checkers, small spools of thread, etc.)

Provide your child with the items
Encourage classifying the items in different ways to sort them into the divided sections
Your child may also enjoy creating patterns outside the deli tray

Pincer grasp (used for writing)
Classifying and sorting by attributes
Exploring patterns
Problem solving
