Materials:

3 sturdy gift or shoeboxes
large package of bows in assorted colors and sizes



Instructions:

1. Cut a hole in the lid of each box, big enough to fit the bows. Make a small
hole in one lid, a medium hole in another lid, and a large hole in the last lid.
2. Invite the children to sort the bows so they fit in the corresponding openings
in the boxes. Label the holes small, medium, and large so the children can see
the written instructions.
3. An alternative is to color code the boxes with colored tape and invite the
children to sort the bows by color.
