TotSchool- Halloween themed

Alligator is now 2 years and 9 months old. So hard to believe. He is still in love with anything ABC’s it boggles my mind what he can do!

Here he is working on a Time For Tots Activity. Where you place a button on the letters in the alphabet. He wanted to go in alphabetical order. This activity was a great fine motor activity too, because he had to pick up the small buttons and place them on the right spot. Look how proud he is when he accomplished it. He did both sides lowercase, and capital.


Here he is working on spooning the pompoms out of the pumpkin tray. I had to use m&ms to bribe him to try not to use his hands, (also a time for tots activity)IMG_5928

I created a Pumpkin do-a-dot printable. You can see my post and download it free here.


Here he is using some of the printables from 1+1+1=1’s monster pack.

Our last activity that I have pictures for is when Alligator and I were trying to make a painted pumpkin. I was trying to get him to paint. I offered him a plate with paint on it and a brush. But he wouldn’t touch it. So then I got myself a fork and a spoon and tried to show him how you don’t have to touch the paint. He enjoyed watching, but would not try it himself.


So in the end he ended up coloring his plate with a marker and a crayon. We will keep trying though.


Thanks for reading. There should be more to come next week!

Linking up to TotSchool


  1. Popping in from Tot School.

    My little boy is the same way. He doesn't like getting his hands dirty right now. And I always thought that was a big thing for little boys. Maybe when they are older?

  2. Found you on tot school!

    My daughter was the same way with paint (and still is!). My son is always right into it though...eating it mostly. Funny how they're all SO different!
