Caleb scooping the rice into the bottle using the funnel.
He wanted to use a spoon so I switched out the ladle for a spoon.
This activity quickly evolved into scooping water.
I made him sit in his booster chair.
Even with the tray, I didn’t want the water to spill on the dining chairs.
There’s no such thing as too careful with kids around 🙂
Caleb: Mommy take a picture.
Okay…I don’t know why he wanted to pose like this.
The thinker??? LOL!
Our scooping activity finally ended up as a blowing bubble activity when Caleb requested to blow bubbles.
I think the colored water in a bowl reminded him of our bubble painting activity.
Bought some shells for Caleb’s homeschool use.
They were still covered in some sand.
Enter the shell scrubbing/cleaning activity…HAHA!
Caleb put the shells into the bowl filled with water and dishwashing liquid. I just put a little–1 to 2 drops. I didn’t want it to be too soapy. Just a little bubbling action during scrubbing.
Me: What are you doing?
Caleb: I’m listening.
(It’s not the right kind of shell for listening.
But kudos for remembering that we “listened” to the conch shell that we saw last year. )
Put some elbow grease into that son!
When he got tired scrubbing, he poured the shells onto the tray.
We rinsed the shells and put them on paper towels to dry. Without being prompted, Caleb pointed out that some shells were the same and some were bigger 🙂 He pointed out the different kinds of shells.
Kids learning while doing an activity is always a plus in my book.
Shell scrubbing is hard work!
Caleb resting after the activity.
Caleb having fun with glitter glue.
This is a wonderful activity for hand control, squeezing, and tracing!
Here he is getting a feel of how to squeeze the glue bottle.
Trying his hand with the letter T.
Tracing his name with the glitter glue (I wrote it in pencil of course:) )
Mixing the glue with his finger.
