This was a pretty laid back week. We’ve had a bird theme going on, but I’ll wait until we’ve finished all our activities before (hopefully) including them all in one Preschool Corner post.
Here are some of the other things we’ve done…
Fine Motor Skills:
Tweezing pom poms into a vase:
Building with a pipe connector toy. This is actually a game, called Pipeline, that I found at a thrift store for next to nothing. I thought it would make a great fine motor activity, and M loves it!
I set out a mini ABC foam puzzle for M. He likes to link these together in one long line. I try to get him to do it in alphabetical order, but that’s really hit or miss at this point. :)
He did great with matching up these rhyming cards (from Prekinders):
He put together these little sticker scenes by matching the letters on the stickers to the letters on the paper. I made these for him a long time ago to do on a car trip. We just never got around to them. He really enjoyed them this week. To see more about this, go here.
And one morning I found him “reading” a few books to his trucks. :) So sweet!
Sensory, Practical Life, and Art:
We are fortunate to have a breezeway in our home (kind of like a 3 season porch, but it runs from the front of the house to the back); when it was too cold to go out one day I set him up in the breezeway on a towel with this messy little project:
This was scooping and pouring practice for him. He placed the funnel into a bud vase, then used the ice cream scoop to scoop and pour the colored sand into the funnel.
He quickly realized how neat the layers looked and it turned into an art experience too:
Then, of course, he wanted to do more with the sand so I gave him some glue and colored paper and he made these:

Have a beautiful day! :)
