Miss A(3yrs) did great with this activity. She was able to match the caps to the outline with no help. She would correct herself if she mismatched any. She was able to point out which is the biggest of all and the smallest of all. We picked three caps of different sizes at a time, and ordered them big, medium and small. She wasnt interested to arrange all the caps from biggest to smallest. I left it on the shelf for a week and she did it atleast once everyday. 😀
Miss D(2yrs) surprised me. She was able to do most of it. She did need some help when it came to caps very close in size. A was happy to help lil sis. We spoke about how the caps were different in sizes and she was able to differentiate between big and small given any two caps of different sizes.😀
