Sort The Wheat



  • Colourful cereals (Froot Loops)
  • White sheet
  • Coloured pencils
  • Bowl


  1. Before class, colour circles the same colours as cereal on a white sheet.
  2. Give each child a coloured paper.
  3. Place a handful of cereal in a bowl in the middle of the table.
  4. Ask the children to sort the cereal according to their colour.
  5. Make a connection with the story you’re telling. In the Bible, Ruth had to sort the wheat to get food for Naomi and herself.



  • You can use a small cake pan to sort the cereal. Simply put a circle of paper of the right colour in each cake pan and let the children place the cereal in the right one.
  • You can also prepare the game sheet at the computer.
