great color-sorting and counting! pompoms, magnets, print-outs, and a cookie sheet. easy as that!
Teaching colors by practicing fine motor skills...the chopsticks may be complicated for most kids...
Match shapes to outlines on cardboard. You can extend this by sorting the shapes or talking about the different attributes of shapes. You can even use the felt shapes to combine and make new shapes and objects once your child is older.
Write the alphabet on a cookie sheet and let your toddler match the magnetic plastic letters (and numbers, too).
