Tot Trays! Week of August 22

We had a few fun Tot Trays already this week.

This first one is from a set of Tot/Preschool Activities that our sweet friend Buffy blessed us with! It had tons of activities, all packaged up in Ziplock baggies. I thought this one was super-fun. Lots of objects in baseball card holders (and then glued shut) and matching items in a baggie. The child finds the matching objects. So fun!
Here's a closer look at some of the items.
Big brother Robert even stopped to help. So sweet.
So proud!!!! She claps every time she finds a match.

I drew some shapes on this chalkboard and we said "circle", "triangle", "square" and "rectangle".
Then I let her have the chalk and go to town coloring it. The erasing was fun too!
Texture Rubbing. Put the items under the paper and rub your finger and then the crayon over it. This was a hit with all 3 kids. This was also one of those Activity Bags from Buffy!
Hand Puzzles (this is made from Foam). This was for Andrew (kindergarten). He wanted a "Tray Activity" too. :)
A fun wooden puzzle for Zoe. We talked about the animals on the farm, made animal sounds and sang "Old McDonald".
Playdough - let's face it, Seoul Sister needs something to do while mama is teaching History.

There's a few of the fun things going on at our house this week. :) Hope your school year is off to a great start!
