Toddler Activity: Three Ghost Friends Halloween Sort

Three Ghost Friends Halloween Sort
Three Ghost Friends Halloween Sort can be used as a toddler busy bag, shoe box task activity, work basket,  preschool center activity, or a tot school activity. 
What You Need:
1. 9 cups or containers (I used small Solo brand cups.)
2. Box and masking tape (This is not necessary, but I chose to contain my cups in a box.)
3. 36 tongue depressors/craft sticks/popsicle sticks
4. Glue
5. Heavy paper/Cardstock
5. Download and print the Halloween Three Ghost Friends Character Sheet

First, download and print the activity sheets on card stock paper. Then, cut out each character.
I had my son cut out the characters while I constructed the sorting box.  I placed masking tape under each cup to hold them in the box.
I dabbed glue on the end of each tongue depressor and my son placed on the characters. 
I placed one character -- a mummy, a pumpkin, a goblin, etc. -- in each cup. 
I told my two-year-old son to sort the rest of the characters into each cup. 
This would be a great preschool or day care center activity for the month of October!
This activity was designed to accompany Three Ghost Friends: Learn About the ABCs - Halloween Edition, an eBook available at the Apple iBookstore using the iBooks App.
