There are a million ways of creating a color sorting/matching play. My son started to enjoy color sorting activities when he was 2 years old. A few months later we added patterns to the colors. Even though he cannot say the names of colors properly, at least sorting and matching is too much fun for him. I want to add also that rubber bands are great for helping to develop hand muscles. This activity is great for fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination too.
It is super simple to prepare DIY shakers and too much fun to dance with. Toilet paper rolls work great for these DIY shakers. You can use either washi tape or coloring pens for decorating them. You can fill them with rice, buttons, pasta, bells. etc. You can diversify the filling to get more different sounds. Highly recommended.
Q-tips are great for tracing activities. If you haven’t tried to use them yet, you can give a start with easy lines and numbers.
Some activities develop spontaneously, don’t they? And the little ones are smarter than we think. This is MB’s idea to prepare a fishing net from vegetable net bags. It is so creative, isn’t it?🐟🐟🐟 It has been a very nice color sorting play and sibling fun at the same time.
This is the best way to explain a kid what our tongue is doing in our mouth. It turned into a fun experience for us. Now we know all details about our tongues. 👅👅👅👅
We made creations out of free art. MB and Omer Taha made paintings a few days ago and we decided to turn them into cute bugs. 😍 Aren’t they so pretty?
This time we prepared very practical one. I realized that my son was always writing numbers from the bottom up, that’s why I prepared this activity and he wanted to try it again and again. If you want to reuse it many times, you can cover the paper with clear packing tape.
The best place to play is nature and the best resources are in the nature. We prepared a color board just before having a walk in the forest. It was an amazing spring welcoming play for us.
Do you know that just with a piece of cardboard you can make amazing DIY puzzles?
