Learning Toys/Trays

Krash loved his Play Doh tray! I put a pumpkin and a cross cookie cutter on it, along with some orange and yellow play doh. This kept him busy for a long time! We had fun making different shapes for the Jack O Lantern’s eyes, nose and mouth.

Here he is sorting by shapes. I gave him 4 different shapes (from a Dollar Tree bucket of foam shapes), along with 4 little craft cups that each had a shape drawn inside (I drew them with a Sharpie). He did well with this as it was his first time sorting by shapes and not color!
Here he has a Styrofoam circle (AC Moore), 4 pick-up-sticks, some colored bracelets and mini tongs (from Target…in a bug kit we got). I had him transfer the colored bracelets to the matching stick.

Nothing quite as fun as cutting the Play Doh dude’s hair, huh?
Pac Man taught K how to play Hyper Dash (this is a great game if you don’t have it…good for Christmas!)

A bit of Connect 4 with Daddy…

The boys LOVE when our seasonal Little People toys come out. A favorite is the Mayflower!

He had tons of fun playing with his bristle blocks and peg set…


Theme…Dinosaurs!

Krash was a dino for Halloween!

I surprised Krash with a new Melissa and Doug Dino puzzle. He loves his other set like this so I splurged on Amazon for him!

We all worked together to color some sheet from Pac Man’s dino lapbook

We were inspired by Our Crafts n Things to make special dinosaurs…



Life School…

We got a special package from a great blogging friend, Julie, who is also a missionary in Hungary! K is in love with the pencil she sent to him!

We went to the pumpkin patch!!!!
He was such a big by running around and playing all by himself!

He even fed chickens!
We don’t have leaves in the inner city, so this was a BIG treat…


Mommy’s Favorites…

First this was my favorite…
then I thought it might be this one…
but finally decided on this one!!!
