Count the fruit, name the fruit, or sort the fruit. Keep little minds busy playing shops or just having fun. Line up all the different fruits, name them, count them or sort them. A great learning tool for young inquiring minds.
Classification and sorting is one of the first steps for children and they need to learn how to sort and classify before they are able to move on to work that involves numbers, because they need to know what they are counting, before they are able to actually count them.
