I have been trying to put out more activities for the little girls to do. They get bored easily and loose focus when they have a bunch of options. So, I have cleared off the shelves and placed out just a few things. I try to change them every couple days. I didn't go out and buy anything, I didn't print anything. I just pulled from what we already had.
Here were some of the items I put out during our farm week:
Magnetic animal puzzles (a yard sale find from a couple years ago).
Putting chickens in nests. I used to have this with the Easter stuff, and realized it could do double duty.
This is an awesome set I got from a friend and have used it many, many times throughout the years.
The page it comes with has places to sort by color and size. The top of it has a place to sort by animal. The backside has a race.
Some items were just to help build skills, like the Ikea stacker.
I try to put out a couple of books. This is a fun one!
Tray of little animals to roll play and say their sounds.
Basic shape puzzle with a blind fold for Mini Cooper (and the big kids who wanted to play, too).
As you can see, though, this can be a really simple thing to set up. Just go through the items you have and sort them into a few piles and then rotate the items every couple days. It will keep the activities fresh without having to write out long lesson plans :).
Thanks for stopping by!
