Non-shape sorter


My son has a  shape sorter, but he doesn’t quite get the shape sorting concept yet. This means that he gets very frustrated when he plays with it on his own and can’t get the circle to fit through the square hole. So when a box of oranges from Costco came in a box with square holes in the top, I knew immediately what we should do with it after eating the oranges.

Johnny and Emma both had a great time seeing which toys fit through the holes and which ones did not. Johnny also tried fitting his leg through, but managed to get unstuck all on his own. I don’t know why Emma insisted on wearing her coat (upside down) for the entire activity.


Haven’t got an orange box? Kleenex boxes work well for smaller toys, or you can always cut holes in the lid of a shoebox (Infant Bibliophile blogged about using a shoebox to make a shape sorter here)
