How to Adapt this Activity for Your Childs Skill Level
You can modify this Ghosts Color Sorting Activity to match your child’s skill level:
1. For Very Young Children
For very young children and those that haven’t learned their colors yet, you could just start practicing their pincer grasp and fine motor skills by picking up pom-poms and pushing them through the holes.
2. For Older Children
For older or those that already know some colors, you can practice matching the colored pom-poms to the correct colored ghost.
You can also practice soring the pom poms into groups before feeding the ghosts.
3. For Very Able Children
For very able children, you can add in counting to the activity. Count the number of pom-poms you feed the ghosts or practice feeding one more each time.
You can also ask your child questions while doing the activity. For example:
- “What can you think of that’s orange?”
- “What in this room is blue?”
- “What food can you think of that’s green?”
Questions like these will elevate this activity and help build vocabulary.
