If you are looking for a couple of simple, budget-friendly activities to keep your tot engaged during the school day, you've come to the right place!
The Hubs brought home a bag filled with paper shreds from the office. I threw all these in a plastic tub along with a handful of small toys and let Greased Lightening go on a treasure hunt to claim all the trinkets.
He was joined by some favorite family "friends" later in the week...Disney Pixar Cars.
I set out pieces of colored construction paper and encouraged him and Blonde Warrior to sort the Cars by colors.
Contrary to the rather bored looking faces in this picture, the boys had a great time and ended up sorting and resorting the Cars several more times.
As simple as it sounds, tearing paper is always a tot favorite. Greased Lightening sat at the school table one afternoon with a piece of scrap paper and ripped it into a million little snippets. He collected them neatly into an empty bowl.
I hope this has inspired a little tot-friendly creativity in you.
