It still amazes me how much of our inspiration comes from our recycling bin. For Emily, this is like an endless supply of free craft materials! For this matching activity, you will need jars of various sizes with different sized lids. We used jars from apple sauce, salsa, yeast, baby food, and artichoke hearts. Wash jars throughly with hot soapy water and remove any labels. When the jars are dry, invite your child to place the lid on the corresponding jar, and sort by size. Emily enjoyed practicing opening and closing the jars, and nesting the lids too.
