Sorting & Counting Apples on the Light Table

We found some amazing acrylic apples at Michaels a few weeks ago and they look fantastic on the light table.  So here's a simple color sorting and counting light table activity for kids.

Light Table Activity for Kids: Sorting & Counting Apples

I set out the acrylic apples and two color sorting containers on the light table.  The two color sorting containers are homemade using individual serving sized applesauce containers and permanent markers.  Simply color the bottom of the container and let it dry.

J quickly knew what to do, sorting the apples into the matching container.

However, J also kept track of how many apples there were by using his calculator.  This boy and his calculator!  There's a reason I made him a calculator cake for his birthday this year.
