Funny thing is, my 7 year old asked me this question while waiting for the bus this morning 😆

Our evenings in the Little Gym are getting full fast! 😳 If you can make a 9:30 or 10:30 a.m. class, definitely look at Tuesday or Thursday mornings. We've got availability for your kids and their friends! (Thank you @kateluberphoto for this photo!)
This game is super simple to make but highly engaging! Using some recycled chip cans, we made quick labels from construction paper with targeted blends. Then we printed multiple pictures of words that start with each of the target blends. For /ch/, we included a cheetah, chips, and the letters /ch/. The last step was to mix up the pictures and let the kids sort them into the right cans!

🐧 Winter Activity Cube 🛷
I woke up this morning with a stomach bug 😷 which makes for a really, really long day as a SAHM where I’m fairly confident the clocks are actually ticking backwards 🕰
Throw 3 tots in the mix, and we are desperate for any entertainment that keeps me plopped on the couch 🥔 (yup 👈 proud to be a couch potato today!)
In the spirit of #letsmoveandlearn , I made an activity cube that was relatively self-directed...well, as much as you would expect from a 3 year old and two 1 year olds 😉
Easy peasy lemon squeezy 👍 I tried to make a cube on my own, not happening 😆, so I found a blank one online that did the trick 🤗 Add some winter verbs and you are good to go. The kiddos took turns (ish) rolling the cube and acting out the item. Gross motor play for the win!
Verbs, verbs, verbs! 🛷❄️🐧 Verbs are really hard for tots to grasp, throw in the wonders of the English language that, for no reason whatsoever 🙃, makes the past tense of “go” “went” and not “goed”, and it’s understandable they struggle with verbs. This simple activity is a hands-on way to demonstrate verbs and starts to help your tot #learnthroughplay 👏 No pressure learning! If your little one confuses a verb, no big deal 👊 A simple question back that models the verb will help them build the framework. “Mommy, I falled like an icicle!” “WOW! You fell like an icicle. Can you show me again how you fell like an icicle?” Ready, Set, get moving 🏃🏿♂️

🕷 TOPIC TABLE 🐛
This fortnight’s topic is BUGS 🐜
We love a good bug in our household and the boys are forever looking out for spiders and ants to ‘save’! I recently bought them a tube of bugs from @amazon so I thought it was high time the bugs got their debut on the topic table. 👍🏻 As well as the Bug IQ book we have also been reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar so they are now familiar with how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. The worksheets are from worksheetfun.com / funlearning.com and the dice is from @amazon . Ladybird buttons from @aliexpress.official
The colourful bug counters and sorting bowls from @ebay_uk are so lovely and we often bring these in the bath! But the best is the ladybug counting set (have a shop around to compare prices) - check out my insta story for a closer look.
We’ve also been matching with our flash cards and other bits n bobs that just couldn’t fit on the table!
It’s BUGTASTIC!! 🤣🐛🕷 ___________________ #topictable#bugs#insects#learningthroughplay#education#counting#sorting#teaching#ladybirds#gamesforkids#funactivitiesforkids#childsplay#educate#learn#kids#instakids

And do you thinking drawing cool things when it’s hot makes you feel cooler?! 🤔This is a colour in file I’m adding to the shop this week. You can either print it out to colour in, or import it into an app like @tayasuiapps Sketches to colour in. Very calming and fun! 🥰

We love seeing a full floor in the Big Gym! Hey Session 3! 🤗
Ben is 5 years old and his parents have been trying to get him to try prunes for a while (to help with constriction) - but with no luck.
Until last Friday...
When Ben showed no interest, his mom grabbed the Superpower Foods Placemat and he completely changed his tune. Getting a chance to explore the dried fruit in a completely new way - a fun way - was just what he needed to take the next BIG step forward.
Here he is snacking on his first prune (without being pressured). I know it’s a relief for his mom to see her son finally take to a food on his own. Especially prunes!.
What’s that food you wish your child would try (without saying “I don’t like it”)?
The Superpower Foods Placemat is exactly what you and your child need.
I would love (love) to get this game changing mealtime tool in your hands.
So you can see that the impossible *is* possible at the table. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Помните, я как-то писала про Орф-педагогику?🎼Про то, что, благодаря орф-семинарам, у меня появилось множество классных идей, как использовать музыку на своих занятия. Так вот эту песенку я позаимствовала у одного замечательного орф-музыканта. С её помощью повторяем части тела и счет. Обожаю её, дети, как видите, тоже😁Музыка творит чудеса🤗Листайте и увидите, из чего я сотворила своих пчёлок🐝

Смотрите до конца -это не совсем то,что вы ожидали 😳
А кто нам оставил ❤️,тому шлем 💋в ответ 😘
Наверное подумали, что это «крышечная» развивашка? 😋Да, но не совсем 😉
Те, кто со мной давно, знают, что ещё давно я мечтала сделать целую сказку «Колобок» из крышек (смотрите мастер-классы в ленте раньше )🌝. Признаюсь- пока дошла только до волка 🐺. ⠀
А ещё меня осенило -клеить листовой гнущийся магнит на заднюю поверхность (знаете такие рекламки на холодильниках есть, тоненькие). Потом же всех героев можно будет вывесить на магнитную доску или холодильник ☝🏻
Что понадобилось: ✔️клей-пистолет ✔️фоамиран (в творческих магазинах). Все👌🏻
Если вы нас увидели 👀, услышали👂🏻-машите ручкой в комментариях 👋🏻, иначе,как я узнаю,что вы есть у меня 🤗
За выкройки спасибо Ольги Гре ❤️
Cubeez is a #sillyface race game where players have to put together faces on the challenge cards by turning, flipping, and figuring out the correct positions of their 3 cubes. The first player to replicate the face wins the card. The player who gets 10 cards wins the game. Cubeez is great for working on problem-solving, reaction time, visual processing, sustained attention, and fine motor skills. #lovethisgame
