Modeling Measurement

Modeling clay can be a fun way to introduce measurement to your toddler. Use the clay to roll several different size balls, then put them in order from smallest to biggest. You can also roll out worms in all different length, ordering them from shortest to tallest. You’ll have so much fun watching him explore arranging these items in logical ways and moving the different sizes around.
