Preschool Bead Sort

Dollar store bead string

This activity takes some preparation and shopping, but the children will be able to do it over and over.

  • get some different bead necklaces and smooth rocks from the dollar store
  • also buy some plastic containers with lids
  • remove the beads from the strings (pick some that are very close in shape and colour to make it challenging)
  • put all of the beads in a pile
  • take one of each kind and put in an empty container as an example
  • the children sort the beads into each matching container

Once the beads are sorted and the lids are firmly closed, they can be used as musical instruments.
