Toddler activities for 2015! We’re starting the year with blue colour (although for 2015 the colour is green?)!. For our reading, we have two books this week that we kept on reading every day (when big brother is not home so as NOT to be distracted). Vito is starting to have longer attention span on books so we can read multiple books in one sitting these days. What’s funny though is that I end up singing the Brown Bear book instead of reading it.
We’ve got loads of this! We started with scribbling. While on vacation, I observed that Vito is becoming fond of scribbling. So I took our all different kinds of writing materials in our doodle drawer for him to explore. You can see below, we have the Crayola Pip Squeaks, Do-a-Dot (with supervision as this is NOT water washable), Crayola Egg Crayon and this writing magnet which we got as a freebie at Emirates (he loves this!).
Observing the little one on how to use some of these materials, he always started writing using his left. I am not sure yet if this is a sign of being left handed, but I still encourage him to use his right. See the upper-left picture? He also uses both hands! It’s amazing that at his age he seems to know how to properly grip the pen LOL. And of course, we still use the buttons… and he uses both hands alternatively.
Then he started to open the yellow which is a little bit bigger than the red.
For our artsy this week, we used his favourite toy as a medium for painting.
Much of our our music adventures are not seen here, because we listen to music and doing lots of action songs as well. Occasionally, we use random materials to create music. Seen below is a cookie tin can lid (drum) and sharpies which we use as a drum set.
It is winter as of the moment, and the weather is negative outdoors so for the meantime, we are stuck at home and doing sensorial activities instead using natural materials LOL. He was eating this banana for breakfast, but when he had enough, he started playing with them. He squashed them! Oh those fingers are so strong! This is such a wonderful activity for those little fingers eh?
