Esther is 31 Months OldHere are a few of the planned activities from our past week.
Esther made a collage of scrap paper and pictures cut from a magazine. I just gave her the paper, glue and scraps and let her create. She had a blast and amazingly enough didn't make too much of a mess.
I finally got all the materials I needed to do a sewing activity I saw at the another blog called Delightful Learning. I taught Esther how to thread a needle and then sew the button. (sorry, picture is blurry)
I made this file folder game from the book called Usborne Leaning Games. This book has some great reading and counting activities.
It is a great way to practice letters or sounds. Esther is struggling with the letter H and G, so I made a very simple Hippo and Grasshopper as the game pieces. (I made them so that they can lie flat for storage)
I also made up a set of number cards with the same number of dots on them. I then gave Esther several small animal erasers and she had to place the correct number of erasers on the cards using the dots as a guide. I've seen this idea on many blogs, so it is defiantly not of my own creation.
And finally, what do you get when you combine one paper plate, a stick, a piece of string and a balloon?
A really fun activity for gross Motor Skills.
Esther played with this for quite a while. First hitting it with the "bat", then running and hitting it with her head. Then she tried to kick it.
