My Tupperware drawer needed cleaned out. I wasn’t finding matching tubs and lids for the life of me.
So I let the kids have at my drawer.
Wiped it clean and started sorting and finding matches of lids and tubs…
George just got a kick out of digging through my drawer. I don’t think he found a single match, but did give it a shot.
Henry joined us and absolutely loved the challenge of finding the lids to the tub.
He even made a few Tupperware towers. George quickly knocking them over. (Amazingly, Henry wasn’t upset and just went ahead and made another tower, only to have George swipe it down again.)
And my Tupperware drawer is sorted through and everything is with its matching lid now. And the ‘scraps’ have been put in the kids’ recycling center for play!
I challenge you to empty out all your Tupperware, plastic tubs and lids and let the kids match them up! It’s great fine motor strengthening, and plus gets in the learning task of matching!
Not only that, but you get to clean out your Tupperware! Throw away the lids or tubs that don’t have matches.
