Preschool Corner

Monkey is 4 years 6 months.
This week has been sort of crazy. We have been sort of busy doing “life”. So there hasn’t been much Monkey/mommy time.
I did order the alphabet sensory tub from Time for Tots (this picture is from TfT’s site).
He loved that a lot.
Games we played with it:
1. He freely explored it.
2. He picked out letters with the tongs and matched them to the letter mat.
3. He pulled out letters and lined them up then wanted me to say what word it made. ( which normally went something like “NBXQT, and I had to try to say it like a word).
4. He likes to bury certain letters.
5. He uses a small car and buries it in the rice

6. He uses the magnifying glass to study the letters and the rice.
Monkey found this image in our garage. We hadn’t used it in over a year. He was so excited to find it that we had to dig it out.
He had a great time making a collage with the stickers. I don’t have a picture but he also made animals out of the playdough. It really is a great kit. As you can see, Alligator liked it too!

  1. That's a great idea for the sensory tub. We're changing our out next week, and I'll have to remember that!

  2. He loves the letters! I may have to find/get/make one with numbers as well. He loves to set out numbers and ask me what number it is.

  3. So glad the kits are a hit! =)
    Great feedback about the alphabet matching in the preschool kit. I'd hate for you to cut that one apart. If you'd like I can email you a copy to cut apart. Let me know...

  4. I am so happy that I found your blog! I have a very active 2.5 year old boy and need Ideas on activities to do with him at home that will stimulate his brain other than playing with thomas the train and running around outside.
