Color Sorting Activity with Earth’s Best

30 Flares Made with Flare More Info'> 30 Flares ×

If your toddler is anything like mine, then you probably go through a ton of Earth’s Best fruit and veggie pouches. Sometimes that’s the only way I can get anything nutritious in him. He’s such a picky eater! I was throwing out all the caps – but then I had an awesome idea! Why not use them to make a color sorting activity for Grady? There’s all sorts of colors out there and after a few weeks I had a nice collection of colorful caps for Grady to use!

I got out some colored bowls (they’re from this set) and I set him up to explore! He really enjoyed sorting out all the colors and then after a bit he switched to pouring and pretending to make food with them! It was real cute!

*Please only give your child the caps while under your close supervision. They could potentially be a chocking hazard if one was to end up in their mouth.*

Do you ever repurpose anything you might otherwise through away? It’s amazing how such a simple item kept his attention for so long. He wants to play with this color sorting activity all the time!

  1. What a great idea! I’ll have to try this with my son. :)

  2. What a smart idea! I have been throwing those out, but clearly I should be keeping them for play or arts and crafts.

  3. I swear you’re spying at my house – we’ve been doing the same thing with the lids! I’ve been trying to think of other ideas because I hate throwing them all away!

  4. This is a cute idea. My toddler LOVES playing with these more than he actually likes eating the food!

  5. I knew those this would be good for something!! I kept them knowing I would need them one day and thank you for showing me the way:) THanks

  6. Awesome idea! My daughter loves the pouches! I’ll have to start saving the lids for when she’s a little older (she’s 14 months now).

  7. great idea!! my son will love this! thanks!

  8. My 2.5 year old loves sorting! I’ve never bought those pouches but I love a good re-purpose! Great job!

  9. My kids love to play with these too, great sorting idea!

    What a great idea! I’d probably throw some counting in there too since my 3 yr old is still learning his numbers and how to count. Thanks for the idea!

  11. Great idea! I’ll have to start collecting mine.

  12. This is so clever!! Now that my son isn’t putting things in his mouth, I can have him do this!!

  13. I’ve been keeping mine for months because I thought the tops would be great for sorting, counting, etc when my toddler was old enough. Just realized when reading your post that he’s probably at the age where he’d enjoy something like this. Love the little cups you found, too!
