C has a hard time staying still and quiet during church. I think I finally found something that keeps her busy enough during her time in the pew (children only stay the first half of the service before they are dismissed for Children's Church) - a Sticker Activity Book! She loves stickers!!
All I used was a notebook, a pencil and those stickers C has in her collection.
Here are a few pictures of some of the pages. Some, you will see, she has worked on already...
There are several pages reserved for certain types of stickers...
A few of them are...food, animals, sparkly, numbers, letters, smiles, stickers with words, etc.
Outline small, medium and large circles with stickers
Put appropriate number of stickers in each circle or rectangle
Draw lines to matching butterflies
Sort stickers by color (there are 3 pages of this)
Put stickers over the certain shapes. This could also be done with letters or numbers.
Sort by flowers, hearts and stars (she has tons of stickers of those shapes)
Sorting stickers by if they are found in the air, on the land or in the water
Fill in the missing letter and number
Grouping stickers together that are the same
I also have a page where she can outline the letters of her name with stickers.
So, those are just a few of the pages I have came up with for the book. Anyone have any other ideas?
How about (simple, cheap, quiet, small) ideas for keeping a 14 month occupied who has a very short attention span?
