Color Sorting Activity for Kids with Gonge Riverstones

Have you seen those awesome gonge riverstones for kids? Maybe you already own them. They are terrific for improving coordination and balance as well as using for open-ended play. After hearing again and again how wonderful they were, I finally purchased a set about a year ago and the kids have been loving them ever since. In addition to using them as stepping stones, the kids love to turn them over and use them as boats for their stuffed animals, seats for themselves, and bowls for sorting ball pit balls. To see how we use them for color sorting, continue reading below.

What You’ll Need

What to Do

Begin by turning the riverstones over and invite your child to fill them with balls or objects that match their color. You could also ask your child to estimate how many balls they think the riverstones would hold and then see how close they got.

They could also scoop the ball pit balls up with a measuring cup and pour them into the riverstones.

You could also ask your child to add balls or objects to the riverstones that make certain color schemes, such as complementary, analogous, or triadic. This is our favorite color wheel for kids.
