We’re starting to get back into the routine of school and involving Logi-Bear more often. I try to get all the boys involved in as many activities together as possible, and it works out sometimes.
Here are some of our activities from this week:
I bought these plastic shot glasses at the grocery store. My intention was to use them in sensory bins, but they are great for other things too! Logi-Bear can grip them just right, so I know they are the perfect size.
This is how I set them up for him to play with one day.
We practice putting a few cheerios into each cup, and dumping them back and forth. And then I lined them up 0-10 and put the coordinating amount of cheerios in each. We counted each time I put cheerios in, and then counted all the cups a few times after we finished! For some reason, he thought the counting was hilarious!
Both Logi-Bear and Royal seemed to enjoy the towers, so I showed them how to make a towel end to end. Royal was pretty sure I couldn’t do it! As I was going I kept asking him which color was next, red or blue? He didn’t even know he was practicing patterning!
We’re started working on some preschool activities with Royal. Right now we are working through the Animal ABCs from 1+1+1=1 as well as my own Terrific Truck ABCS (which are getting a bit of a makeover ). We started with letter A is for Alligator and Ambulance.
Wouldn’t lucky have it that we had the opportunity to meet, touch, pet, and hold an alligator this weekend? There were 2 alligators at this event – one was a 9 year old albino alligator named powder (pictured below). She was very calm and tolerant, and at one point even started to fall asleep! The other alligator was a small baby (1 year old!) and named Amos. All of the boys had an opportunity to hold Amos!
That was it for our week! We had a lot of F-U-N and I actually can’t wait to do it again next week (which is not something I always say!!)
