For the next few weeks, I hope to produce a Tot Trio series...a series of posts that illustrate three tot-friendly "school" activities that can be used that week to capture the heart and mind of your tot.
A bucket of kid-friendly magnets and a cookie sheet can supply some momentary entertainment as well as some great practice in hand-eye-coordination.
Greased Lightning enjoys coloring, but adding the textured underside of a wooden puzzle makes for a fascinating kinesthetic element to an otherwise normal coloring page. He loves the bumpy feel as he passes his crayons over the paper.
I have a large assortment of clean bottle caps that I use for various homeschooling activities, one of which is color sorting. With the aid of an old muffin tin, Greased Lightening can sort out caps into color, size, or even shape. Most of the time, he just enjoys dumping them in and out of the "holes", but occasionally, there is more method to his madness.
