Good one. The big brother can do the painting and the little brother can do the sorting. Or both. Toddler Activity - Take an egg carton and paint the inside of each section a different color. Ask toddler to find small objects that match each color. Ideas: nature, pompoms, crayons, small blocks, balls... Hide colorful objects if you're not in a place where child can find & match objects.

Made from kitchen sponges that are cut up and tied together, they last longer than water balloons and are softer and splashier than regular balls. Best of all, after tossing them around, the kids will be as clean as the kitchen dishes
