I can barely take photos of Vito doing activities these days as my hands are also too busy being involved with it. So one technique that most blogger Moms do is to take photos ahead of their materials for presentation. I’d like to borrow this technique, but I will try to do my best to take snap shots of Vito doing these activities in action since I still find it cute to post some photos of him LOL.
- Montessori Letter Work book and Bible Stories (for Lent)
- Yellow Colour Basket
- Hape Counting stackers (a favourite!)
We’ve been using the Montessori Letter work for weeks now and Vito loves tracing the letters. We’re also reading the Bible Stories (this was Mavi’s) for Lent. The rest of our reading/language materials can be found here.
Because Easter is just around the corner, we’re doing a few Easter themed activities. This one is a colour matching activity. I got the pail from a local book store and the yellow mini baskets from Dunnes. I am sure that there’s plenty of these at Amazon.
Another activity is the 1:1 correspondence. Vito loves transferring objects and I am sure he’s going to enjoy this one!
New activity this week is the building of blocks! This is an old toy and I got it out for Vito to use. Vito is starting to enjoy stacking the blocks. I torn between getting the pink tower and brown stairs or Melissa and Doug Unit Blocks.
We love our Giotto Bebe finger paints! It has NO SMELL AT ALL and SO EASY TO WASH! I came across this brand when we were staying in Belgrade and I fell in love with it instantly. Their finger paints are so creamy and Vito loves its vivid colours! And it is sooo easy to remove (and non toxic too!).
And I let him use our Do-a-Dot markers! This is colouring a cross for Lent. We’re taking a break from crayons and pens so I’m letting him use this stamp markers for variation. This he has to practice stamping, not writing as he used to. I have to demonstrate first what to do with it. We’ll be using this a little bit more for practice.
It has been sunny for the past weeks and we’re always outdoors!
