Peek & Find ~ Fruits and Veggies

Peek & Find Fruits and Veggies

We have a  new Peek & Find featuring Fruits and Veggies! Peek & Find is a great activity for for Tot Schoolers, Preschoolers, Kindergarteners and beyond. There are a few variations to this activity can easily grow with your child’s ability!

You can also add in some fun elements to the activity, or simply print, cut, and play! Below I will share the free printable, ideas for different levels of play, and fun variations.

There are two main elements of the Peek & Find activity.

The “FIND” boards, available in color or BW…

The “PEEK” cards…

Slide7 Slide8Slide11 Slide12

Print the board, selecting color for younger kids to make it easier and selecting BW for older kids to make it more difficult. Print the cards, on cardstock if possible and cut them out. Laminate if you plan to use these cards repeatedly.

A few options for play…

Option #1 {single player}

Print the Peek & Find board.

Print the cards and cut out.

Mix up the cards, choose one at a time and find the object on the Peek & Find board. Color, circle, or mark the object.

If you have an artistic child who loves to color, challenge him/her to copy the colors and color the board to match the cards!

Option #2 {2 or more players}

Print a Peek & Find board for each player and one set of cards. Cut out the cards.

Flip over a card and race to see who finds the object first on their board. Using Dot Paint with this game is fun!

Winner keeps the card.

Person with the most cards at the end is the winner!

See a video of my daughter and I playing {we were using the SPRING theme board in this video} …

Option #3 {sensory, fine motor activity}

Create a sensory bin and bury the cards.

Use a fine motor tool {child tweezers} to dig for cards and pull them out and then find the object on the Peek & Find board and mark it.

Option #4 {gross motor activity}

Hid the cards around the room and challenge your child to find one card at a time and bring it back to the board, find it, mark it, and repeat! This is a great version for those of you with energetic younger kids!

Options for marking the board…

  • Dot Paint
  • BINGO Chips
  • Bottle Tops
  • Pouch Tops
  • Mini Pom Poms
  • Markers, Crayons, Colored Pencils
  • Beads
  • Mini Erasers

        Flower Calendar Connections

        Flower Identification Calendar Connections

        My daughter has been very interested in flowers lately so I created a Flower Identification Calendar Connections set! This set is very basic and just focuses in naming the flowers, thus no back page with information.  She was interested in learning names and seeing pretty flowers which is why I made it simple.

        She has enjoyed seeing which flower is next each day, simple summer learning for us!

        Flower CC -8123

        I hide that little bucket of cards and give her the new one each day as a surprise and she puts in in our calendar.

        Flower CC -8114


        The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar.  I print my numbers on cardstock and laminate them before cutting them apart.

        We also still create smaller sets to go along with the small pocket charts found in the Target $1 section. Be sure to visit this post for a tutorial of how to sew your $1 pocket chart into a calendar!

        There is also a sheet included to be used in a Calendar Notebook if you are using those too!Calendar Connections  SMALL Flowers

         

        See some great flower books to go along here! I especially love Lola Plants a Garden which was new to us this year!

        Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

        Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

        Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why, and how!
