preschool fun

I’m pretty excited for this year as Owen is getting old enough to start doing some preschool-type activities with him.  Through Pinterest, I found this amazing website of ideas.  It’s called Engaging Toddler Activities.  Now I’ll warn you that it might make you feel like a bad mom.  At least it did to me.  This lady does stuff with her kid all.the.time.  Does she ever take a nap, or let her kid watch TV?  Not sure. . .but there are tons of great ideas and printables.  So focus on that.  So I whipped up this quick one during naptime.  And when he got up, we played with it.  For about 5 minutes.  And then he moved on.
I found a color wheel picture on Google.  Printed it off and laminated it with this stuff.Picture 230That is one thing I really miss about teaching.  The laminator.  I may have to buy a small one if I ever decide to home school.  Anyways, then I took 6 clothespins and colored them the matching colors.Picture 231 The goal was for him to match the clothespins with the color.  It was pretty easy for Owen as he knows his colors well.  But he had a hard time pinching the clothespins so we’ll get it out again for that fine motor practice.Picture 232 Then, we went around and found cards that were the right colors.  He found this part a bit more up his alley. :)Picture 233 Picture 234 blog-signature-1


  1. But Em, teachers NEVER use the laminator for personal use....ha. ha. ha.

  2. Hahaha you are so right. I never would do that. Ever.
