While Tinker was sorting chocolate kisses by color I wanted Lovey to have an activity that builds on sorting but also includes a bit of number sense practice.
Sorting and Combining Sets Activity
We used the free printable (available below) and placed it in a plastic sheet protector so that we could repeat the activity multiple times.
As she sorted the chocolate kisses she counted how many of each color she had and recorded the numbers.
For an extra challenge she combined the sets to find out how many in all. Then she recorded the sum.

Up next in the chocolate kisses series, we’ll share some measurement activities.
This post has been shared at some of these fantastic link parties.
