Sock Matching

Putting laundry away the other day, with Ty wanting to try on many of the socks I had piled-up (he just loves funky socks!), I wondered why I was going to do the sock matching when it's something that Tyler could so easily (and excitedly) do?! I had tried the activity in the past with no interest from him, but it had been many months and I had nearly forgotten about the idea. He loves matching activities now so it would likely be well accepted. It was almost nap time, so l kept the socks out and allowed him to help me out when he woke if he wished.

"Sockie" love. And yes, we've been staying in warm jammies until (or after!) nap quite often around here! :)

The work was so simple that I probably don't need to say a word about it! We lay out one sock for each match in a line and he matched them appropriately. He talked about how Tyler socks were "small" and Mama socks "big". This was fun for him! If I was thinking a bit more I would have had him then put the big and small into their own piles, but we're going to do more laundry work soon I hope. Plenty of time for that another day!


  1. I'm so happy to find you!

    I love your blog!

    Thanks for doing and sharing!


  2. Thank you very much Marika! :)

  3. If I do laundry I always give my two children a little responsibility of simply sorting out socks from the laundry basket. It's an effective form learning of teaching them what looks the same or not and what does belong or not.
