Well, Baruch Hashem (Thank G-d), little kids get bigger, and my little ones have now moved their naps up to the afternoon.
And so, we now have 2 new little students joining us in the mornings (they could not be happier:)
The first few mornings were chaotic, to say the least... "mommy, take the baby away, she's taking my playdo"... "mommy, the baby's taking my crayons!!" etc.
I figured that I need to come up with some little activities to keep those little hands busy as well as a special blocked off place in the classroom for the big kids (which I did using bookshelves) so we can resume our usual routine-
Here are just a few things I put together that I put out for them today and they LOVED each activity, it really kept them busy. You can also click here to check out other posts I have put up on activities for toddlers.
Using the pincer grasp, they need to take the buttons out of the slots and put them in the Tzedakah Box:
I attached Velcro to wooden blocks and made a little pad with Velcro dots. They need to pull the blocks off the pad and put it into the bin through the slot:
They need to pull the pegs out of the holes and put them into the bin. I ended up getting much more pegs, they really liked this one:
This one is a bit too advanced for them, my 4 year old love it tho:
