Another fun week for the little guy and I. This week, we of course continued working on our daily calendar activities. It’s so crazy to think that he knows which pieces are which. I’m assuming he knows which shapes go where because of course he doesn’t know his numbers quite yet, but either way, we both love doing this together each morning.
We also spent some time playing with our Safari Ltd Coral Reef TOOB Set* (these are recommended for ages 3+ and the pieces are sort of small. If your toddler still puts things in their mouth, I would look for something similar, but with larger pieces). I ordered the National Geographic Kids Coral Reefs* book too, but we unfortunately haven’t gotten it yet. I’m guessing we’ll probably get it next week.
The little guy loves to sit beside me while I’m working and do his own thing and these are great for that since I can closely supervise him while he’s playing with them.
We also went outside to check out the snow for the first time this winter. It’s usually dark by the time we get home in the evenings, so… That was definitely an epic fail. Lol…
Since neither one of us liked the idea of being outside much, we decided to bring some snow in with us and create a sensory bin with it. I gave him his mini colander as well as a few things from his Learning Resources Primary Science Lab Set* and Learning Resources Helping Hands Fine Motor Tool Set* and of course tossed a few old towels underneath.
We grabbed our Tupperware Tote-em Pails* to play with too. These are one of the absolute best things I’ve bought thus far for him.
This actually ended up being more like daddy and I played in the snow and the little guy watched. Daddy made some snowballs and he and the little guy were rolling them around on the floor but, for the most part, he didn’t have much interest in the snow. Whatever works, right? Better luck next time. Lol… He really wasn’t crazy about sand at first either, so… He absolutely loves water, though.
