    Thanks for posting this, I am always on the lookout for things to do with my almost-three year old! I think she will enjoy a new type of challenge!

    My granddaughter likes to sort things. We were at my daughters wedding and she was sorting the mints. I’ve seen her sort other things too, like little toys. It is an important skill and they enjoy doing it. It works their little minds.
