Vito is 12.5months old.
This is Vito’s first adventure in Tot School. This is my way of journalising his wonder years, capturing his “firsts” and discoveries in the same way that I have documented Mavi’s preschool years.
These are the books we’re reading so far for the month of November.
We started our pincer grasp activities a few weeks ago and you can read about it here or by clicking the picture below. In the picture, Vito is inserting Galt Toys Inc. Fun Buttons through a slot that I've cut from an old plastic container.
As you can see, we’re using as much ‘red’ in our activities. This is because were are exploring the colour RED as of the moment. I gathered toys like red LEGO Duplo blocks, shakers, red wooden stacking ring, blocks, pompoms and red bug counters and placed them in a basket. The card you are seeing is a homemade colour card.
Best way to explore the RED colour is by finger painting. In this case, we used the Giotto Bebe finger-paint, the line of paints for kids that I truly adore. They are 100% odourless, nontoxic, washable and has this creamy texture (not watery!). If this brand is not available you can also get Crayola Washable Finger Paints from Amazon US.
Vito loves holding paintbrushes, so instead of giving him crayons to scribble I gave him paints for him to try with his paintbrush. Vito loves the creamy texture and the vivid colour is so good in the eye!
I previously made these homemade shakers. They’re plastic travel bottles, with beads and pastas in them. We shake them to produce sounds, and at times I would sing children’s songs with the shakers.
The weather has been so glorious lately. So I took a few leaves and brought them home so Vito can play with them. He loves holding the petiole and waving the leaf like a flag.
Here’s Vito exploring Mavi’s school grounds. He loves it there!
Well, that’s it for now! Hope you enjoy the post. Till the next one!
