All of our animal friends came for a visit today. Of course they are the stuffed kind that don't take a whole lot of responsibility :) Lil'ManJ decided that it would be nice to give the horse a drink though. It was so sweet and something he completely came up with on his own. Since J really loves his water bottle it was such a nice act of sharing something special <insert heart melting "awww">.
Animal Friends Tot Pack for all the lesson plan ideas and resources.
tot pack is always a hit and attracts the attention of multiple toddlers as soon as I pull it out.
tot pack we also had some fun sock puppets to explore. Sock puppets, and puppetry in general, are starting to become a passion of mine. EMan walks around with a sock "puppet" (aka: a dirty sock that should be in the laundry) on his hand all the time. I've heard that others in tot school have started putting socks on their hands as well. Don't be surprised if you start seeing it in your home. It's becoming a trend :)
Tot Pack has a sorting animals by home activity. There are farm animals and animals that are more traditionally pets. It's quite a bit more challenging for toddlers as there aren't outlines for matching the animal to but they played this game over and over, so we know it's a keeper!
