I’ve discovered that if I throw a metal muffin pan in with the poker chips that both my 4-year-old and 19-month-old will sit and play contentedly and use the muffin pan as a sorter. They will sort the poker chips into the muffin tin by color or just have fun filling the compartments. My 4-year-old has also made PlayDoh "muffins" and placed them in paper muffin liners in the tin. The tin is also handy for sorting those ABC magnets that are usually up on the fridge. So if my girls are a bit bored I pull out the muffin pan. It works every time.
