Learning - Dollar Store Style

We purchased the above items (there were a few more cups and clips but they did not make it into the picture) recently at our local "dollar" store for about $7.00 and turned them into the following learning activities.

First we had a color sorting tray...after printing some color squares off of the computer.

After the little guy was done, big brother had a chance but he got to use the tweezers that came in the bug collecting kits. I also flipped over the colored squares and gave him a shot at recognizing the numbers that I wrote on them.
Then we used the plastic cups and magnet clips for some more color sorting and fine-motor, hand strengthening exercises.

The good thing is that all of the items can be used again for more learning games or their original purposes.
