They are the little things that help you attatch toys to pretty much anything. I thought it would be a good fine motor activity for C and a great teether ring for G. I collected them all and put them in a box. We had fun counting them, sorting them, chewing on them..he he. And then we made a necklace. C felt like Mr. T with her necklace and wore it all day.
Learn: My daughter loves necklaces. I should already know this because the other day she wanted to wear one because she saw I had one on...too bad they just aren't safe enough for tots to wear.
Love: I love that she asked to see the mirror 3 times just to check herself out!
Look: Pumpkin Muffin, Tofutti Pizza, Butter Beans, Tomato w/ tofutti, celery w/ tofutti and raisins
Learn: My daughter does not like vegetables, she licked the tofutti off and out of the veggies. She inhaled the pizza and raisins, played with the muffin and finally ate it and thought the beans were a toy of some sort.
Love: I just love making a variety of food for C when she only eats about a quarter of it...(yes I'm being sarcastic).
toy stroe today. First C put on her hat, got her purse and we pretended to drive using her Elmo steering wheel. When we got to the store (aka our family room) C purused the aisles and was very deliberate about what she put in her cart. Then we pretended to scan everything with a noise maker, I gave her a total on the magna doodle and she paid me in high fives. After bagging the items she put them back in the cart. When G and Daddy came down, C gave her brother a toy without paying for it. But I let her shoplifting slide. We had fun, but C didn't want to put the toys back to start over. She prefered shopping until everything was mostly gone, which meant she had tons of bags. Lets hope she isn't like that as a teenager.
Learn: I learned that my family room can become just about anything and that with prompting C can get very into it. I also saw how much she loves little G man!
Love: Pretend is so fun, the child is really just emulating what they see you do, so its like looking in a mirror a bit.
