I’m definitely loving working with both them together as well as separately!

Our Winter in the Woods theme has been wonderful and we’ve enjoyed Hedgehog Activities for Toddlers & Preschoolers, Quick & Easy Playdough Prints Toddler Sensory Tray, and of course the Frozen Objects Winter Preschool Activity.

We’ve shared so many fun things this month and let’s not forget how we’re adapting Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for a young toddler (16 months old) and of course a kindergartner too. Because let’s be realistic, this preschool curriculum is just that versatile!

In our first post this month, I compared a preschool activity with the corresponding toddler sensory tray. The week after, I shared an activity that baby girl had a wonderful time with. And last week meant lots of fun with both little kids as they worked together on one of the preschool Investigation Station STEAM activities.

Let me just say that I’m quickly realizing playdough is kinda her jam! She thinks it’s all kinds of awesome.

This little white metal tray was love at first sight for me. I found it at Target and thought it’d be a great way to keep her tray play activities confined. You know, because toddlers and all.

I loved watching her explore the squishy playdough and make impressions with the buttons. It didn’t take her long at all to realize that she could basically use the buttons as stamps.

Ironically I got the kids some playdough rollers for Christmas and at one point, she reached behind her and grabbed one to use. It’s so fun to see her learning and exploring and making connections entirely on her own! I’m definitely enjoying using the Little Goose Toddler Teacher Guidebook!
