Large Grape Juice Bottle
Large Sprinkle Container
3 Liter Soda Bottle
Large Stainless Steel Bowl and a Bus tub of some kind from Business Costco:)
These added so much fun to the sand box for the kids!
Here is how the tray looks on the shelf.
The child turns each cup in the stack over in a row. Then they spoon each marble(from a cheap Chinese checkers game) into the cups while sorting the colors.
When they are done, they gently pour each cup back into the dish and stack the cups up.
Then they return it to the shelf the same way they found it:)
I love the sensory stimulation in activities like this, the sight of the colors, the sound of the balls clinking one by one! Love it!
Here’s how to do it for yourself!
1. Grab pictures of each family member you want to include(I snagged a bunch off of facebook-right click-save as). Collect them all into one folder and crop them so that all you see is their face. I made sure every picture was in portrait so they would all be the same.
2. Select all of the photos and then click print.
The first thing we did was put them on our white board. We talked about our family and doodled.
We plan to write names, tell stories, sort(age, type of relative), learn dates of birth, and even use it to talk about serious things like death, divorce, adoption and other “life” situations. It’s also a great way to help kids know who family members are before they come visit or before we go visit them!
