here at Toddler Toddler . I wrapped a kleenex box in paper towels like I was wrapping a present (again, I am seeing a serious materials shortage at my house... we need paper! And real tape!). Since I figured it wouldn't last long, I quickly drew shapes onto the box, although once I get real paper I will probably cut the shapes out. This all took less than five minutes and voila! Shapes dice. We rolled the dice and then called out the shape that was on it--I only put circles and triangles on it to keep it simple. It was really fun. Obviously it is already falling apart due to Owen feeling like he has to claw the box to throw it, but it was a very fun activity and I know we will do it again soon!
I also downloaded this simple shapes book a few days ago called Shape Monster from Hubbard's Cupboard
The other "new" activity today was playing with the shapes sorter game.
Finally, I know that I posted this the other day but I thought I would post the sensory bean tub again, It is one of Owen's favorite things to do, plus we added a little singing to the activity today. We had lots of scooping implements as well as the triangle and circle shapes, and I let him play by himself with it for awhile (which, in general, means disaster).
Anyway, thats what we are up to, hope you got some ideas that you can use and please share with me anything you have been doing that you think we would enjoy!
