sorting through our mardi gras mess!

today we did a quick and simple pajama project before MMO, I used a cheap egg tray from Target and our mardi gras beads... we practiced cutting the beads (these are GREAT to use for cutting and for working those fine motor skills) and we sorted away... we had big purple balls, small purple balls, "prism" shapes, and "football" shapes so we discussed color, shape, and size.  I lined up a simple ABAB pattern, just to get him familiar with patterns, but this could be more complex for older ones- let them try to create a pattern too!
This was a quick and easy little lesson and a fun morning time mess!
Enjoy  :)
