I’m working on some new work for the boys this week so I thought I’d share some of the inspiration I have for activities for Big Kid: 


Crystal posted about her day-of-the-week boxes at the end of this post. What an excellent suggestion for preschool quiet times!


I’ve been reading the coin activity posts over at Moveable Alphabet with interest. Big Kid is interested in money but not neccessarily math, so I’m thinking about extending the work he’s done with money to include some of the suggestions listed here. Anything to get him started thinking about numbers!


I’m using this example of Valentine’s Day Tic-Tac-Toe to make a more generic Tic-Tac-Toe board for Big Kid. Small bean bags are in the works, and we’re off to the store for posterboard later this morning.


I’m also planning to teach Big Kid how to play the card game War. We’re going to start with 2-5, then add cards as he gets to know the game better. We’ll throw a couple of decks together to have a decent amount of cards, and see how it goes.


For Little Bit, I’m putting together a basket for tearing paper, a tub for washing dishes, and some new color matching materials. I also asked Superman to think about the possibility of making a low balance beam to walk on, but we have to consider storage for it first. I’m thinking it can hide out in the laundry room.
