Sorting Scraps with Ethan

Another goal for this year is to get my scraps sorted and organized.  I had some help with that today from my nearly three year old grandson Ethan.

We were playing "stay off the firery carpet" using the puzzle mats, when I suddenly thought of another way we could use the mats.

The reds, blues, greens, and yellows were easy, but the multi-colored prints had to go in the "all mixed up pile"  

This actually was an efficient way to sort and work through my box of scraps, and I am further along in my sorting and organizing.  I plan to have a separate container for each color, and probably a few containers for the "all mixed up" pieces.

Thanks for reading, I appreciate it.



  1. My little grandson loves to play in the scraps. Maybe we will sort the colors next time!

  2. How cute and what wonderful fun for both you! Great idea!

  3. What a great idea. So great to have help. Bet he will be good at matching after that. HNY!

  4. I think this is the best way to learn your colors! You just invented a new and wonderful game.

  5. I am going to have to try that. I am afraid that my grandson may only be attentive for five minutes, though. Great idea!
