TOT School-Wk 18

We started out the week at the Children's Museum. Laffy Taffy laid some eggs? This dinosaur room was scary! He did not really enjoy it, but he likes getting his picture taken, so he sat there for me. :o)
Playing in the "creek" is way more his speed: frogs and crawdads. Perfect.
And painting! He loves painting! And I love that I didn't have to clean up afterward!
Back at home...I had him sort by shape which was a little harder, but he liked the challenge.
Sorting by color.
Matching and patterns.
This is another fun game by Lauri. It's called "Peg"gy Back. Basically it's a color game, you roll the cube and the color it lands on is where you move your peg. I love this color game for the little ones learning colors, but I don't like all the images on the game board. If you, like me, don't appreciate wizards and genies, do what I did and color over the little offenders with a sharpie!
Last weekend I found three new puzzles for Laffy at a Thrift store. The puzzles were only $1.91 each. Here's one-
Here's another this one he is trying to button the lab coat.
This is the most favorite book of the week! Blue-Raspberry and Bubble Gum couldn't stop laughing the first time I sang through it! And Laffy, well, he had me read it over and over again!
And here he is, reading it himself! Enjoy!
