Tot School

Yes, we are still doing Tot School, unfortunately, less than I would like. B does request to do activities from his shelf area and we have an enjoyable time when we get the opportunity to play together. So here are a few things that keep us busy.

putting paper clips into a slotted lid

wooden puzzles

Can we say addict? This little boys love Little People books, videos and his Little People Garage. We have been doing a lot of reading, especially when sitting on the potty, a book or shall I say books, are a must. We have also been enjoying books by Byron Barton, Richard Scarry and the Brown, Bear, Brown Bear series.

Connect Four is a great fine motor activity.

Our fall sensory bin filled with corn, raffia, leaves, pine cones and various containers and scoopers.

stacking pegs

playing with branch blocks, made by daddy from last year's Christmas tree

Our Christmas sensory box filled with pompoms, paper clips, napkin rings, clothes pins, bottles, spoons and ice cream scoop and rice. B loves to collect all of his dump trucks and play with them in the rice. I place the bin on a blanket for easier clean up.

I hope this gives everyone some ideas of things to do with your tot for both fun and learning.
