Colour sorter

Little A was bored while I was cleaning the kitchen and started to empty out the recycling bag. He was naming the colours of the milk bottle tops so I seized the moment to make a recycled toy!

You need
Egg box
Coloured markers
Lids from plastic bottles

Colour egg section of egg box in and provide different coloured tops to match. See what happens…!

After naming the colours it was time to open and shut the box a bit.


With a little bit of prompting, he started to sort the colours.



He put the coloured-in diet coke lids into the bin. He could tell they were a bit rubbish compared to the dyed plastic. He then practiced spinning each top individually before putting the egg box back in recycling.

Result is my kitchen is pretty clean!
