Of course all of these ideas and activities can be done with things around the house, or a quick stop at the dollar store!
Home Made Playdough
This activity only lasted about 5 minutes, at which point he realize it would be faster to just pour the bowls of vinegar into the baking soda, rather than use the spoon. Again, this was a great experience and he loved stirring the concoction. Unfortunately, it turned into a tantrum when the temptation to pour the potion on the floor over powered stirring and as such, the mixture was taken away.
Regardless, this was a great activity that certainly got the gears turning in his head!
Pom Pom Push
I'm pretty sure the goal is to have your little one push the pompoms out, but not my monkey! Instead he pulled them out - oh well, likely took longer! He had absolutely no interest in putting them back in place, but was happy to have me do it!
So, a great activity that he quite enjoys, but not so independent.
