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.

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