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?



One Response to Rock Painting, Sensory Tubs, Colored Rice, & Peg Board Fun!

  • The rock painting seems like fun! :) Might hafta give it a try…don’t know about the rice though. I have three children…I can see it being disastrous. LOL

    I loved that while she was painting the rocks her tongue was sticking out. My middle child does this same thing! Too funny.
