Tot School - Snowmen & Snow

C is 32 Months
(J is 10 months)

 C dropped the buttons we used in last week's activities into a water bottle

 Sorted hot and cold pictures
(images were from a Mailbox Magazine from a few years ago)

 Glued circles (snowballs) onto paper

C used scissors for the first time! I helped her cut on the line and thought it was too hard for her since we were struggling. After that I just let her do it on her own and she cut (off the line) just fine!

 Traced lines
Printables from Itsy Bitsy Learners

 Threw yarn snowballs into a garbage can
 J had some sensory fun with the snowballs! (with close supervision of course)

Other things we did with the snowballs, but I did not get pictures
* Snowball fights! C thought that was great!
* Tossed them onto our foam ABC mat and named the letter it landed on
* juggling -- well attempting to :)

We did this together, C lost interest :(
Name Snowman (idea from Live, Learn, Love)
C and I worked together to make J's while she napped.

We played with small colorful hair ties.

 They are great fine motor practice for making patterns and sorting colors

 She also matched the pattern on her pants

  1. I love the snow balls into the garbage can and the hair ties. I will be trying them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. We also used those Itsy Bitsy Printables this them! Also, love how she matched the hair ties to her pants...too cute!

  3. What a fun week! I think we are going to try the throwing snowballs into a laundry basket :)

  4. I bet she love the yarn ball toss. I will need to make one for JDaniel.

  5. This post has so many wonderful ideas and has inspired me in my Tot School planning this month. I've featured you here:

    I hope you'll stop by and grab a featured button. Have a great day!

  6. Love that you tossed the yarn snowballs in the bin! Kerri
