Say Wha??? Hold on, let me check my calendar.Yep. May 26th. Wednesday. NOT Easter. But why should Easter Sunday get to hog all the fun of these plastic little gems (that sit in my cupboard the other 364 days a year)?
I mean, look at what you can do with them.
You can put them in water and catch them with your net:
You can group them by color:
You can make them sink by pouring water into them:
You can push them around and roll them:
You can sit in a tiny tub of water like it’s a swimming pool and count them:
And you can even eat your lunch out of them:
See, no need to hold out for Easter!
What did Zach learn today? How fun using non everyday objects can be to do everyday things. And we talked about the principles of sinking or floating (and colors..again).
What did Mommy learn today? I think kids just don’t eat their veggies if they don’t want too. I’m losing this battle big time. I mean, I put the carrots IN and EASTER EGG. Fun, right? Nope. Not eaten. Those cherries were gone in 2 seconds though!
Also, I’ve been doing some sensory stuff with the babies. They got to feel soft and silky when I gave them some Lovies. And splashed in the water today too.
