Bottle caps make a great, inexpensive preschool manipulative. If you’re anything like us, it doesn’t take long to accumulate a nice, varied collection of bottle caps. I just toss them into a little basket in the dishwasher as we empty various containers. Then, they’re clean and ready to become sorters and counters and whatever else we can think of.
