Travel Sorting Games

These travel games were cheap and easy to make and perfect for packing in my handbag or the pram when we go out.


* small sectioned storage boxes
(they cost a few dollars each, we bought ours at Bunnings but I've seen them in most dollar shops, craft stores, Target etc...)
* small objects for sorting
(we used coloured paperclips and buttons).

The paperclips are stored in the storage box and can be sorted by colour into each compartment. We can also use them for fine motor games (linking together, twisting them into shapes) and activities like patterning.

The storage boxes keep everything contained and neat.

Button sorting activity box. I chose buttons of different colours and sizes so we could sort using either characteristic.


  1. Great idea! We will be using this for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Caz, this is so clever of always! I love that you come up with such great ideas that can be replicated so easily!!
