Big and Small

We regularly sing, “Open, Shut Them“, but recently I wondered how to better explain big and small.

What You Need

  • Big and small boxes
  • Big and small versions of the same objects, such as:

big toy car/small toy car

big comb/small comb

big leaf/small leaf

big book/small book

big sock/small sock

What You Do

Find all the items and place  the items on a tray. Your children choose an item, then they find its bigger or smaller version. Put the big item in the big box and put the small item in the small box.

[Slightly tweaked from: 501 TV-Free Activities for Kids]

Big and small, big and small, big big big big small small small….!
