I missed the Letter of the Week. . . again! But I promise I have a good reason. My sister and her three girls came for the day. We did a lot of really fun things, but the Letter V never made it to the table. I did get a little baby time though and Baby J was her perfect goofy self. After an extra long game of “Hi” with her Uncle C, Baby J wondered into big kid territory. Tears started to fly when the lego fun suddenly became an off limit NO BABY area! Lucky for Baby J. . .I am a pretty fun Auntie!
I found an empty tissue box and a cute little pink bag but any two containers would work for this. I set the two containers and a stack of fabric in front of Baby J. (For the fabric, cut the pieces different size and try to vary the textures. We even had a few pieces of ribbon.) Baby J spent almost a half an hour transferring the fabric back and forth, while 6 adults watched fascinated by her intensity.
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. This is a great opportunity to introduce words like: soft, bumpy, full, empty, hold, put, and fill. 2. Try adding more containers, or placing the containers apart so that your little one has to move from one side of the room to the other.
