Tot School

Tot School
Well this week was up and down for us. Monday was the only day that someone was not sick. On that day we went to our local animal shelter for a field trip. DD#3 loved seeing the dogs and cats. She especially enjoying hanging out with the cats. She let everyone know that she did not want to go home. :)

Toddler activities The rest of the week we had someone sick at our home, so we kind of winged-it. I'm so glad that I have toddler activities organized already, so it was easy to just pull out some things for her to work on. She has a couple favorite activities that she asks to do on a regular basis:

- Color. Oh she loves to color! In fact, I've had to make a special box of paper just for her to use so that she won't find other things to write on (like our school books).

- Glue. She really enjoys glueing punchies and cut-outs onto cardstock. I have a big pile of punchies already punched. I give her a small pile and she glues away.

- Cut. Usually after she's done glueing, she'll take scissors and cut her project up. That's ok. Building her fine motor skills. :)

- Drawing on a chalkboard. We have a portable chalkboard that she puts on the floor and draws on.

- Melissa and Doug Ballerina puzzle. This was her puzzle of the week.

- Spooning objects into an ice-cube tray. Lately she's enjoyed using the glass rocks. We've used mini-erasers, pom-poms and large beads too.

Punching paper. My guy loves it and it is such a great fine motor activity. Especially getting the paper into the punch.
