simple activities for tots

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

My daughter has been having a fabulous time with her own little explorations in learning and playing.  I try to set up invitations to learn around the kitchen (where we spend most of our days since there is no homeschooling room!)  She loves having these special tot activities all to herself.

All of these Tot Activities are very simple to set up!  I hope you feel inspired to present your child with engaging, hands-on learning invitations too!  **Some of these activities include small parts, which could present a choking hazard, ensure your child is supervised at all times.

Our first activity, that we have out quite a bit is a little wooden box full of various items.  I set this out with our sandpaper number cards!  John began lining the numbers with the correct amount of gems!


An insect tray — using our Insect Toobs for matching — and for anything imaginary related.  (Here is our Bug sheet!)  My children both love bugs right now, say they are often found around the house… much to my dismay….


I first saw this trick at No Time for Flashcards.  Setting a piece of paper on the wall with a small basket of stickers entices any child to use there fine motor skills!  It also keeps the stickers in one area :)  May was so excited about this and has used many, many stickers over the past week!


I set out a simple math counting tray for May.  And she knows how to add the manipulatives (here, just some wooden buttons and mosaic tiles) onto the leaves on the leaf cards.  It is so exciting to hear her count to 9 now!


And some playdough with a tray full of random, beautiful objects to tinker around with are just perfect for little hands and imaginations!  Just look at her masterpiece!  Here, I gave her playdough with the big wooden box above!  She absolutely loves this open ended work!
