Tot School Aug. 17-22

We are getting back into the swing of things with Tot school in the Spell household. I now have two tots enrolled! I still have to organize all the workbox and toddler activities that we have, so this week we kind of just pulled things out of the cabinet without much planning :)

DD#3 did some free-play with her farm magnet set. She also matched the pictures with the words (using the small picture on the word card---you know she's not reading yet :) ) and told me what each animal says.

Then she joined the older kids in illustrating Psalm 148. She glued flowers and colored. She really enjoyed gluing---almost too much! I had to take the bottle away and tell her she was done :)

Now I kind of forgot to plan something for DD#4. I quickly glanced around the room to see what I could find that would amuse her. I found my stash of plastic lids and a plastic cup. Viola! Cheap and easy activity.

The lids the perfect size for her. I didn't have to worry about her choking on them. I was very surprised to see how much she enjoyed putting them in the cup and then dumping them out.

For even more tot school ideas check out this week's round-up:

Aren't these unplanned activities fun? I am also not organized and just doing whatever I have at hand when the kids seem to get bored. It is very fun what we end up coming up with.

Thanks for posting!
