- Candy coated chocolate balls (M&M's work well too)
- Clear glass or plastic jar
- Bowls and cups for sorting
We started out by washing our hands very well. Since I was going to be serving these to party guests, I wanted to make sure everyone's hands were super clean.
The candy came in four colors - red, yellow, blue and green. I gave each child four plastic cups and a bowl filled with candy. I started them off by placing one of each color in each of the cups. They took it from there.
I was worried there would be a big spill and I would have a floor filled with hundreds of candy balls but I think only three actually fell. The girls worked diligently. A and B, the twins, kept asking for more balls when they would run out. Little C got bored after she finished sorting her first set.
The kids were able to go through three bags of candy. When the candy was done being sorted I place it in a glass jar to see how it would look for the party. Not too bad!
Oh and I should mention I am not the meanest mom in the world. I gave each child some of the candies as a "thank you" for a job well done.
One chore checked off my list. I will keep you posted on our preparation and on the final results of our party planning!
