This is a combination of the games and activities we’ve done over the last two weeks. First, I wanted to show you this Learning Resources Rainbow Peg Play Activity Set I bought with a gift card a few months ago. Emma LOVES it!
It comes with a double-sided peg board (soft, light, flexible, kind of like corkboard I think), two shoe laces, and equal numbers of colored pegs. Kids can stack, sort by color, string them together, and play the games included in the instructions. This is a definite favorite. :)
Another thing I really wanted to try was dying rice different colors – so easy and so rewarding! I went with two Spring colors, blue and green. Then I made a sensory tub, something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile. I used an oversized hat box and threw in some things from the kitchen. There have been some minor spills, but nothing my Dyson handheld can’t handle. :)
What kid doesn’t like to play with something “messy” like this?
I decided we needed something else for the sensory tub so we went rock-gathering outside. After we had collected about 15 or so, we brought them in and set to work painting!
Emma really got into this activity – she loves to paint!
I admit I painted a few, too. :) It was fun!
Some of them ended up in her sensory tub and some are on my windowsill above the kitchen sink. :)
Did you do anything fun with your kids last week?
