Tot School - Letter G g

Turbo is 31 months; Sweet Pea is 6 months

We've had so much fun this past month. I must say that with this time off, I'm a bit out of practice in having my camera near by. So I didn't get as many pictures as I'd like.

G is for Grocery Store - again, sorry about the lack of pictures!
- Cut pictures from the Safeway ad and glued them onto a list
- 'shopped' at our pretend grocery store using our play kitchen food & pennies
- Field trip to Safeway!  His first time loose in the grocery store.  All things considered, he did great!  The most fun was the produce department. He helped me pick the produce, put it in a bag and then weigh each bag before tossing it into the cart. Typically I have Sweet Pea in her car seat in the basket of the cart. Obviously that wouldn't work this trip! So I had her in a front carrier. It limited my mobility a bit in chasing Turbo when needed, but other than a minor apple pile tumble, we didn't cause too much damage.   There were so many learning opportunities at the store - Scales, weight, vegetables, fruits, quantity, etc.  The next time I'll leave Sweet Pea with Rick so Turbo and I can do list shopping and more.

Glitter - Lots of texture here and it was fun to draw letters and shapes in it too.

G g matching - Turbo placed all the G g correctly, but when it was time to glue them, he lost interest in sorting.

Shapes with fingers - Surprising, this was a harder for him than I expected. The easiest is the triangle. We're making circles with our arms as it's challenging for him to make them with his fingers.

Money Play - Turbo loves playing with coins. He typically carries them around, puts them in his 'purse' or plays with them in his Cozy Coupe Car. This day he was dropping them in the bottle - figuring out the quarters didn't fit, so he stacked them on the top. 

Foam Peanuts


Same / Different Cards

Box Guitar - if you've been around here awhile, you'll know that Turbo loves music! His piano has been his prized toy every day and I thought he'd like a guitar. I saw this on a crafting site that I can't find again. :0(  Get yourself a kleenex box, a paper towel tube and some large rubber bands. I used a felt bar as the bridge, but you can use a dowel, pencil, pen (with the point/ink part removed) or maybe even a straw - it just needs to hold the bands up a bit.  Cut a hole the size of your tube in the side of the box. Paint everything. Assemble and play.  I suggest reinforcing the top of the box on the side where you cut the hole. The rubber bands made it collapse a bit after a few days.

Real Guitar - His new favorite toy.  I will post a video of his first day playing it. This kid's a natural I tell ya.

Here's a picture of him at Toys R Us last november. This is right next to the train table and a bunch of other toys available for the kids to play. This is what he wanted to do.

Rainy Day Fun - we had a lot of storms the past 4 weeks. In fact it hailed so much one day, the ground was white!

Hammer and Ice ~ This kid loves to eat ice.  While potty training we needed to give him A LOT of liquids. This was one of the ways I kept him very well hydrated. He gets to smash the ice into edible pieces. He thinks this is terrific, so we've done it several more times. 

Have I lost you all yet? I didn't realize this was turning into a marathon post! Guess that's what happens when you don't post for a month.  While we did so much more, I just don't have pictures of most it.

My daughter would love making her own guitar! Daddy plays to her before bed every night and she pulls out her Little Tykes guitar, but this would be an acoustic one like Daddy!! Thanks for the idea.
