When I wrote about our St Patrick’s Day sensory tub, I briefly mentioned an extra game that I had made to be added to the tub. It was a DIY felt rainbow size sorting game. I’ve received quite a lot of queries and feedback about that game so I thought I’d write a separate post about it.
For this project, I used 7 pieces of felt, one piece in each colour of the rainbow. The largest piece (the red piece) measures approximately 15 cm (6 inches) wide. I didn’t use a template, I kept it pretty freeform and just eyeballed it as I cut a rainbow arch shape from each of the various colours. I actually really like that it is a bit organic and not perfect.
This is how the pieces look when they are separated.
The main purpose of this game is an exercise in size sorting but we’ve also used it to learn the colours of the rainbow, as well as making other patterns, shapes and pictures with the pieces .
R has really enjoyed this little game. It was so quick and simple to put together and I think it was one of his favourite items in our St Patrick’s Day sensory tub.
