These have been so loved by the three children who have used them. They have been used to learn the names of the workers but then Solu also enjoys finding similarities and differences e.g. picking out which ones are wearing brown shoes, hats, similar colors etc.Musical instruments toob used with this awesome first discovery book. Also enjoyed during this time period were unit blocks, his beloved tricycle, scooter, slide and lots of self created gross motor activities. As always, I’m happy to answer any questions.

This magnetic fishing game is simple to sew and will provide endless hours of creative play. The free printable template makes it easy to assemble, and it is a great gift idea for both little boys and girls. There is something endlessly fascinating about magnets. As a child it seemed almost magical to me that two things could attract each other like metal does to a magnet. So what better way to start your little one’s introduction to physics than with this toy! There are many tutorials for various versions of this homemade toddler toy on the web. I also wanted to make a fish where the metal washer was on the outside of the fish to make them easier to “catch” with the magnet, and I came up with my own method of attaching them using satin ribbon which I think looks great and is really secure too (good if there are littler babies around the house).
