On this activity we used corkboard and playdough and started to create different emotions – happy, sad, mad.
As he worked at the playdough by putting the features of the face into IKEA corkboard, we also had a great time talking about the different emotions and even acting about the facial expressions.
Inigo had a fun time making faces – a great introduction for toddler learning about emotions.
Thank you for finding time to read my posts. Please feel free to share them as well!
Have an inspiring, positive day ahead! Stay blessed!
This is a classic skittles science experiment that everyone has to try once!
All you need are three things: Skittles, water, and a shallow bowl! That’s easy enough right?
Setting up skittles science is so easy.
First, I let them add the skittles around the edges of the bowl. We used at least four of each color. You can chose whatever combination you like or experiment with patterns.
Then we fill a white shallow bowl with about a 1/2 inch of hot water. The bowl doesn’t have to be filled completely.
The skittles start to dissolve pretty quick so keep your eye on them.
The Science behind it…
Skittles are made of ingredients that are prone to dissolve in water easily.
We love creating FREE indoor activities for kids that are easy!
Using last year’s marbles we created a “marble race” in the living room that is sure to keep Inigo busy for quite some time.
It is super easy to make. I used an empty plastic bottle and used the knife to cut the bottom part. I also used the tissue rolls and tape.
Once built it’s ready to play!
Ready for play!!
You are ready for races!! You could even put a solo cup at the end of the runway to see who could get the marble into the cup at the end….now that would be super fun!! 🙂
I’ve never met a kid who doesn’t love water play. Even the smallest bin or bucket of water will keep any toddlers happy for hours. Two very simple things – water and squeezy bottle – have been keeping #chinitoinigo busy and happy again and again.
Quick and Easy Toddler Activity
What you need:
- Small tub with 1/4 to 1/2 full of lukewarm water.
- A small squeezy bottle
- A towel to catch spills
- Washable tempera paint (optional)
Directions: I filled the small tub with clear water and gave the squeezy bottle to Inigo. Eventually, I added blue tempera paint to look like an ocean.
Inigo likes to squirt the bottle. I am happy to let him since it builds fine motor skills. Squeezing the bottles is also great for fine motor skills, and it’s so much fun!
We also used this chance of learning new vocabulary words like empty, full, squeeze, dry, wet and squirt.
Sometimes, it is often the simplest things that engage young children the most.
Loads of fun with just a few simple things and very little preparation. For this invitation to play, I gave toothpick and empty clear plastic container.
I gave him the empty container and a small paper plate filled with toothpicks. I showed him how to pick up one toothpick at a time and drop it into the container.
When it was his turn, he picked up several toothpicks at a time and then ended up dropping them.
He learned that it worked much better to only pick up one at a time. He was very engaged in this task and thorougly enjoyed it. 👍
