Halloween Candy Sorting

31 Oct

If you’re looking for something to do with ALL that candy from Halloween, check out this fun, educational sorting activity!

There are many ways you can sort out the candy, but we just tried two ways. The first way was sorting it by BIG and little pieces.

There was some discrepancy because some were neither big or little, so we started a pile in the middle for medium sized pieces.

Next, we sorted by wrapper color. I taped the color names to the table. We practiced saying the color names and he was proud because he was “reading”. He got a little confused with “white” since it wasn’t actually white, but he caught on quickly.

He was very proud of his work and took this job seriously! I was pleasantly surprised at his concentration and how focused he was for this. It took him a little while, but he was determined to get them all sorted.

And finally, we got them ALL lined up. We also talked about which one had the most. We thought red, yellow and black had the most, so we counted them to see. It ended up being red.

If you’d like a PDF copy of the words we used for this sorting activity, click here.

Now I’m off to hide all this candy so we don’t eat it all this week!! Happy Halloween!!
