Have your child look in their closet and/or dresser and have them make 2 piles: 1 for clothing that is too small and 1 for clothing that fits “just right”.  Take the clothes that fit and sort them into the following piles: one color vs another color (e.g. pink shirt/green shirt), stripes vs polka dots, pants vs shirts, like vs don’t like, dark vs light colors.
