toddler body awareness activity

{CRAFT} Simple Toddler Body Awareness Activity

24.09.2013  

One of the wonderful things about toddlers is they are developing independence and becoming more self aware. They are able to use their bodies to accomplish an increasing number of skills such as running, jumping and feeding themselves. They are also beginning to label and classify objects so naming and recognising their body parts is a skill they are often keen to learn.

{CRAFT} Bottle Chickens

27.11.2012  

Every time my toddler and I get all the craft stuff out (which is all the time) I ask him what he would like to make. For the past week he has been saying a chicken and I kept steering him in other directions, like a car or a boat, as I couldn’t think of a good way to make a chicken. I had a good think about it and looked through our recycled treasures and we came up with these cute little guys. He loves them and is still playing with them today
