We had the opportunity to play with these Sort and Count Cups from Quality Classrooms.
Fred enjoyed putting the colured discs into the bowls, sorting and matching by colour.
Rose went a step furhter and discussed how she was mixing the primary colours to make new colours:
She made a turtle, dramatically making it lose its shell.
Sequencing by colour and number was next.
Putting two cups together with discs inside made great sounds and an entertaining showers of discs!
And of course a cup of tea with your pinky finger sticking out is a necessity.
Here is the low down on the Sort and Count Cups:
Children can learn to sort and count with this simple design that can be played in a variety of ways. Play instruction and cotton bag included. Ages 18 months+.
Sort and Counts Cups is a Plan Toy and as such is made from a combination of natural rubber wood and PlanWood™. PlanToys® are made from natural rubber wood trees that no longer produce latex. To keep the wood pure, no fertilizer is added to the soil three years prior to cut the trees down.
To strengthen the wood, PlanToys® uses a chemical-free kiln-drying process. PlanWood™ is another high quality, safe and sustainable material in our toy-making process. This material will be used in harmony with our solid rubberwood.
PlanToys® is assembled using a certified E-Zero formaldehyde free glue in place of traditional toxic wood glue. PlanToys® commits itself to find the best eco-friendly material. The organic color is not only good for children but also for our environment. PlanToys® does not use chemical dyes containing lead or any other heavy metals.
Recycled paper and Soy ink are used for our printed materials. Soy ink is more readily biodegradable and can be recycled more efficiently than standard chemical ink.
Feeling great about the sustainability of our children's toys makes parents happy too!
