it’s been a beautiful past couple of weeks here in Galicia. some days being a little too warm. on the days that are too warm we usually try to get outside right when we wake up and then again after 7ish. but here’s what we’ve have been up to lately….
i’ve always wanted to have a cool sensory table for mymy. something more than just a plastic bin on the floor. something higher up that she can stand and play at. our glass top coffee table (that opens up so you can display items in it) was the perfect solution. i just removed the glass and voila! i’m sure if you keep your eyes open you could find one at a thrift store or garage sale. i would think that there are also some that have missing glass pieces just begging to have a new life. gotta love re-purposing items!
^ here we used some dry beans, lentils, and rice with her Playmobil farm and beside that with her Schleich animals.
i love watching mymy play pretend. her imagination is incredible. i see a lot of our real life situations coming out in play and it makes me smile to see how she interprets things. she has been playing Doctor’s Office a lot lately and i decided to dedicate a little corner of her room to help expand her play. she has a little doctor’s kit but i felt like she would love something more.
here are some of the activities mymy did this week
^ sweeping up some beans. “can you sweep the beans into the square?” “can you sweep them into your dustpan?”
here are some things that have been keeping mymy and me busy over the last little while…
we dyed rice and beans to use with our animals. it was really easy. just toss rice and beans (or just rice) into a double bag, throw in some drops of food colouring and shake shake shake. lay flat on a sheet of wax paper or paper towel to dry for a few hours and voila!
here are some things we did this week:
^ Arctic sensory bin with white rice, white beans, rocks, blue rocks and plastic jewels, and animals
