Geo Solids with Magnetic Tiles

This one kinda speaks for itself.  We used the MagnaTiles to make some of the Geo Solids.  It’s a great way to help them break down the different shapes and sides that make up the solids 3d shape.

10 Sums

Pumpkin 1 wanted to do an activity with the glass gems so I set up this.  She wanted to do it over and over.  I’d put some gems on the board.  Then she’d have to add the right number bar.  I’d write it on the chalkboard.  She’d add the rest of the gems to equal 10 and the number bar and I’d write it on the chalkboard.

Practical Life Skills

Toddlers and preschoolers love life skills activities.  These stimulate so many senses and skills.  Large and fine motor skills, eye hand coordination, prediction, etc.  They are also inexpensive and easy to set up. Here are two we recently did.  My daughter loved spooning the lentils with the little spoon.  The 3 year old I was babysitting wanted to do the pouring into a cup and then pouring back into the bottle with a funnel over and over again.  It was messy at first but she soon caught on how to do it.   I got all the things in this post at the dollar store.
