Printable Practical Skills Sorting Activities

Here are two Printable Practical Skills Sorting Activities. Through these activities, kids can sort items by the practical skill area they most pertain to.

There are two unique worksheets: one that addresses self-care items and the parts of the body they relate to; and one that addresses clothing items and the parts of the body they relate to. Specifically, kids can match clothing items like shoes and boots to feet and a hairbrush and comb to hair.

Why Teach Practical Skills to Kids?

In my parenting experience, kids love to learn practical skills. Learning little bits of everyday skills over time has helped them develop confidence and independence. They love to contribute to practical activities like dressing, brushing their teeth, and washing their hands.

This article from Very Well Family gives several great examples of practical life skills that we can teach children.

The Montessori Method emphasizes the value of teaching kids practical skills. This article from Guide Post Montessori relays the importance of practical life activities for children from the Montessori perspective.

These Printable Practical Skills Sorting Activities Can Serve as a Conversation Starter

My hope in creating these practical skills sorting activities is that they will serve as a way to start or continue the conversation about practical skills. In my experience, kids learn these skills a little bit at a time. Through these sorting activities, adults can talk with kids about practical life skills.

Depending on where kids are with the development of skills like dressing and washing their hands, adults can tailor the conversation in a way that is most helpful.
