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!
If you have kids, I would definitely recommend you keep some clothespins on hand. “Why clothespins?” you may ask. First, there are so many fun activities and crafts using clothespins. Second, they are great for developing fine motor skills!
With so many different activities and crafts using clothespins, having them on hand is a great way to keep kiddos occupied for a good chunk of time.
We had done activity with clothespins recently, so I thought of giving him cup and clothespins and see what he’ll do with it. He started clipping them along the edge of a cup and as he was talking as he played I overheard he was counting the clothepins.
When Isabelle saw her Kuya Inigo she joined us and I gave her plate as well.Sometimes it maybe too advanced for Isabelle’s age but watching them together doing the same activity and enjoying what they are doing looked so cute!Silly – I know – but these realizations make me so happy! I love watching the interests of my kids – they are full of awesome ideas! Whenever I am needing a little inspiration I just sit back and watch them play … within a few minutes I always have another creative learning activity in mind!
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!! 🙂
