Rainbow sort

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day I planned a rainbow sort for my class.  I found the idea at this website.  I drew up a simple rainbow and gathered all he tubs of toys we had and explained to the kids what we were doing.  As a group we went from one color to the next having a blast finding enough toys for each color.

After the sort we decided to leave the toys that way for a while, but then the kids wanted to play with some of them so I put them all together in a tub for them to 'Play with a Rainbow'.

They played with this tub of toys for most of the day and then toward the end of the day we sorted them all back to their original tubs. I will definitely be using this activity again.
