As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
We’ve had so much fun with our At the Pond theme already this month. Mother Goose Time is definitely a favorite around here.
Today, it’s all about turtles. We read Turtle Splash and spent some time exploring our brand-spankin’-new manipulatives.
Each month, we get two sets and this time around, we ended up with a magnifying glass and some counting ducks. Of course it didn’t take long for the little guy to dig in.
He loves stuff like this. I’d probably even go as far as saying the manipulatives are the best part of “box day,” at least he thinks so. Lol…
After that, we did the Snap a Letter activity, which included making our name tags for this month’s theme.
We explored using tweezers or tongs to put a small item on each letter, which meant working on fine motor skills. As we were pretending to snap up a piece of “turtle food,” we named each of the letters too.
We started working on a fun Turtle Pull Toy. We’ll have to finish it another day, though. We got as far as painting the bowl that we’ll be using to create the turtle shell. And when it’s dry, we’ll put it together.
Last, but not least, on our list of things to do today was the Webbed Feet investigation station. This was definitely all kinds of awesome! The little guy had a blast playing in the water.
