|This was Colton's activity but we have two boards so he shared. She can't actually get the rubberbands on yet but she loves to try.|
This week for her tot trays she gets to enjoy:
An empty cinnamon container that I washed out and some pipe cleaner pieces. This is a great fine motor activity for her. She got really frustrated that she couldn't get the pieces back out on her own though. Even the boys wanted to play with this one.
Her stacking cups. These cups stack, nest, and can be snapped together to make rolling ball shapes (and yeah there are 7 of them missing but I'll find em eventually lol). They have the little holes there in the top (bottom?) so I put the jar of pom poms in with them so she could put them through the holes.
And in the third bin I put her color wonder markers and paper. I love this stuff. She can color with markers like her brothers without coloring all over everything. It's worth the cost to me. I've got enough pen, pencil, and marker on my walls to last a lifetime.
I got these bins at walmart and I love that the lids lock on and she cannot currently remove them herself. This makes it easier to store them in the living room on the bookshelf where I had been reserving space. I also have room to add two more shallow bins or one more deep bin as time goes on and I need to give her more to keep her occupied.
Tune in next week to see what else our little princess tot gets to enjoy at "school".
PS. I JUST noticed how colorful she looks. She and Colton had done their do a dot pages with bingo markers before I snapped these pics. Those things have a great range of splatter when you bang them down hard enough. lol And never fear, it all came off in her bath last night.
