The kids are little sponges lately, so I’m taking advantage and spending time doing activities that teach, but also things that are fun. I found some Melissa and Doug stamp kits for $7 at TJ Maxx, and since the kids love stamping and the ink was washable, it was a great find. I bought one wild animals and one farm animals. I drew four shapes on a piece of paper – square, triangle, circle, and star. I had them identify each shape. Then we got to stamping, while saying the animal sounds, choosing a color and counting the number of stamps. They had a blast and I think they finally learned circle!
When I asked him to show me his mouth. (This looks so much like his surprised face. And don’t mind the ridiculously warm photos in that post. Wow.)
