This was a big hit.Simply put numbers 1-6 in various sized shapes (I used hearts for Valentine's Day) on a paper. The girls took turns rolling and coloured the corresponding number. Great for counting and recognizing numbers and fine motor skills. Popsicle Stick Sorting
Mine are way more ghetto than the tutorial but the idea is still there. Both girls have known their colours for ages but still enjoyed sorting the sticks by colour and organizing them in the corresponding tubes.
Good for fine motor skills. This was the first time I ever bought Fruit Loops for the girls and they thought it was the best thing ever. I'm pretty sure more got eaten than were used in their names! Baking
By far one of their favourite things to do. It's a great activity to do together, they enjoy measuring, pouring and stirring, they can count things, compare measuring cups and discuss concepts like more/less and bigger/smaller. It doesn't hurt to have a yummy homemade treat at the end either!
Bean Sensory Tub
I stocked up on a bunch of inexpensive beans in the bulk bin for this. Sometimes they play with their hands but usually it ends up a "baking" activity of measuring and pouring. It's a great outdoor activity too (though I'm still finding beans outside from last year!).
