The theme this week, I never had a theme before if you have noticed, is RAINBOW ! Can these even be a theme? I guess yes, I have already a lot of ideas covering this theme. Sarah already knows the colors but this combination is new for her. I prepared this tub yesterday. I bought nothing this time, I had everything on hand. Here:
My old necklaces and accessories (many beads ;) ).
Orange hair strands from our dress up hair,
Pom poms, marbles, colored rice and beads.
I don't have blue food coloring so I couldn't add rice here,
I used blue gems instead!
I love the colors!
Her large beads and eggs!
Pegs, hair bands, fuzzy stems (I shaped them into a butterfly and an arc),
balloons and beads.
Can you see her foot warmer?
MY BEADS :)
Then right into the real beads.
Mommy, didn't you know I have to do them?!
Blowing the balloon!
Weird enough, she didn't notice the hair!!!
Scooping and pouring!
Now, I have a question for the sensory bin experts? How do you introduce your bin for a second and third time? Do your kids remain interested in it? I really need to know. I guess I'm scared of introducing it and getting disappointed if Sarah didn't enjoy the repetition!
After that, we HAD TO play with our light table. GEMS! I love them! Now, seriously, Farida loves our light table the most. Don't try to mess with her and take her away from it when it is on. She will throw a fit which is totally unlike her so you know she is serious.
She was falling here but was so attached to the bin,
I told you: she won't let it go!
I missed hands on crafts. We'll be doing more in the next few days but thank you Allison for reminding us of this one :)
Here, I realized I needed to stop being cheap and add more color.
It didn't really matter afterwards, she was happy with it anyway ;)
She told me to hand it in there.
I think everything around us is a learning opportunity. Today, we went to the library. Sarah chose some books to read. They were really advanced BUT it is still a learning opportunity. Forget about reading, let's look at these pictures and say what we can see. Can you count them, baby? Good job, now tell me, what color is this ...? Endless ways to learn. we moved around the library looking at every craft or picture hanging on the wall, mentioning the letters if we saw any. Learning doesn't have to be structured or in a room, it is all around us.
Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed!
