Our family sometimes played “Go Sock” by dumping all the unmatched socks in a huge pile in the middle of the floor. I dealt out a few socks and we took turns making matches, getting them from each other, or having to “Go Sock” and choose a random one from the mound. We played our way through the perpetual work of matching family socks.
In a game or just getting it done, sock sorting is authentic work. Good for you, this means that you are –
- teaching a life skill
- working side-by-side with your kiddo
- modeling getting a chore done with a good attitude
- getting the socks taken care of
You are doing the important work of parenting.
