Tips to Try 

Sort silverware after washing.

Sort socks and other laundry. Sort socks to match each other, sort all shirts into one pile,

or sort laundry by person (mom’s clothes, my clothes).

Sort toys into different groups (all animals, all action figures, all art supplies) –

turn this into a clean-up game!
