Playing in water is a classic experience that nearly all babies enjoy. An outdoor kiddie pool is great when the weather is warm but there is no need to stop the wet fun when the air outside turns chilly. Just bring your kiddie pool inside to a warm room (with a water proof floor) and let the tots sit in the pool and play with warm water from a basin. They love using cups and funnels to fill clear bottles with warm bubbly water and to mix pots or bowls of water with spoons and whisks. One novel variation on this theme that I've tried successfully is to add a couple drops of food coloring to large clear containers of water. The colored water adds a new twist to the play and provides another opportunity to teach the names of colors.
I have been getting lots of questions about how I made So here's a full tutorial on how to make it yourself! If you get free boxes, use paint you already have.. then you'll only spend $4(pack of zip ties) to make this castle! I went into my dollar store and asked them if they had any extra boxes..
Hva gjør man når man har en hel søndag til rådighet, masse teip, og 4 unger som liker å leke sammen, og da gjerne med biler? Jo, man lager en by av teip! Bilbanen strakte seg utover stuegulvet, og opp på sofaen. Sofaen ble et høyt fjell.
Picasso is always a hit with the kids. I especially like doing self portraits in his style as it allows the students to be a bit more open without the inevitable "I don't know how to draw....or I'm just not good at this" type comments. (Seems to hit at Grade 4) I have 2 methods to show you. When describing the portrait I ask the students to see how he represents both the head on view and the side view together. I know that is a bit of a simplistic interpretation but all of a sudden I have kids really trying to interpret his paintings.....great to watch unfold.
In celebration of Saint Patrick's Day I bring to you the Shamrock Color Viewer! What better holiday to teach children about color mixing (and hence tying in the popular St. Paddy's theme of the rainbow)? And what better way to do it than with a fun craft that takes the shape of the symbol of St.
Welcome! If you are new here you might like to sign up for my newsletter to get more ideas about how to nurture connection and creativity with kids. Thanks for stopping by! As a participating blog in Toddler Approved’s 100 Acts of Kindness Challenge I spent a month knowing I would be writing about how to be kind to your children. It’s not that I don’t want to be kind to my kids all the time, but honestly, it made a real difference to be thinking about this list. When I consciously decided to find ways to be kind to my kids I found I was catching myself more often before I sighed impatiently.
1. Have an indoor picnic. 2. Build a fort out of blankets (use chairs, couches, yarn- anything to hold up the blankets!).
Ich habe "La(ck) Cuisine" in schwarz mit silbernem Innenleben gemacht. Es gibt den LACK-Tisch aber auch in vielen anderen Farben. Auch das Innenleben kann man farblich individuell gestalten und schlussendlich mit verschiedenen Stoffen für Utensilios und Stoffkörbe individuelle Akzente setzen. Also bevor es zum Einkaufen geht, bitte gut überlegen, wie Eure ganz individuelle "La(ck) Cuisine" aussehen soll.
three years of my work-life was spent as a preschool teacher. part of the job was to come up with inexpensive but stimulating activities for the kids, and this is one of the easiest and cheapest, but also one that the kids loved the most. my little guy is finally old enough to start enjoying this little activity, and i can't tell you how nice it is to sit him in his high chair and have him play quietly while i make dinner! the best part is that i know he's discovering and learning as he explores texture, colors, and cause-and-effect. supplies: plastic bag that seals tightly at the top (like a Ziploc bag) packing tape paint (I used Crayola's washable finger paint )
Heute zeige ich mal etwas "Altes": "La(ck) Cuisine". Gebaut habe ich die Küche schon Anfang des Jahres als Geschenk zum 3. Geburstag. Aber vor Weihnachten sind ja viele Leute auf der Suche nach Inspiration, um ihren Kleinen selber eine Kinderküche zu bauen.
