Letter Match 🌟You'll need a pack of alphabet stickers for this activity! (You can find these almost anywhere, but I found these at Target for $1.) Write the letters of the alphabet on a sheet of paper for your little ones to use as a "puzzle" for matching! They will work on their fine motor skills as they peel off those little stickers, and their letter recognition as they search to find the match for each! 👌If you are looking for a different challenge, try matching uppercase to lowercase! #TheKidsPlay #thekidsplace_alphabet

This was a quick and fun Christmas activity we did yesterday during the snowstorm❄️ we had here. I took a bunch of cardboard tubes and Christmas baubles (remember to use the shatterproof kid friendly kind) and we started building. The best part was knocking them down. Then repeat!

Need more quick ideas for activities this Christmas? There are tons on the blog (link in profile). Plus I have them all organized on Pinterest, you can 📌pin them for later!

Do you ever wonder what kids are thinking 💭? Even before my daughter arrived I would often wonder this.
The wonderful thing about kids is that I think they’re mostly living in the moment. This is something I’m being more conscious of and vacations are a wonderful time to practice. A time to watch the waves 🌊 hit the shore and stare off into the horizon just like this little one was doing this evening ✨. Kids are the best teachers aren’t they?
Hands up 🙋🏻‍♀️ if you agree 👍🏻.
P.S her dress is tucked into her pants🙄...oops #parentfail 😂

These leaf ABCs by @thekids_place are a great idea!!
@Regrann from @thekids_place - Leaf ABC's 🍁Head out for a nature walk and collect those leaves of different colors! Label them with a marker A-Z and encourage your little ones to line them up in order of the alphabet! You can also use them to spell words or practice your child's name! It's simple, absolutely free, and very effective. #TheKidsPlay - #regrann

Flower Soup • A beautiful fall bouquet that was reaching the end of it's life made for a great sensory "soup". 💐 Add some flowers to food colored water 💦, and give your little ones spoons and bowls for scooping! #TheKidsPlay

Pom Pom Water Bin • I’ve been meaning to set up this simple sensory play idea, ever since seeing it on my friend @happytoddlerplaytime ‘s Insta feed. It turns out, you can put pom poms in water, dry them out when you’re finished, and they’re still perfectly intact for next time 👌. We added our @kidmademodern poms into a large storage bin of water, then added some fine motor tools to the mix! Bowls and cups for sorting pom poms will also add to the fun. Fine Motor Tools set by @learningresources. #TheKidsPlay

⏰Telling time⌚️QR has asking what time is it? Is it x o’clock already? Is it night time yet? Is papa coming back already? 9273648 times a day. So this solo parenting weekend, we went on a watch hunt & I’m pretty pleased with our find. I love that the hour & minute hands are labelled and there are different colours for hours & minutes. It also comes with a time telling booklet. AND there was a 20% sale at city chain so this was $36. Not bad right? #notsponsored .
Now to hunt down time telling printables and activities! Please comment if you know of any awesome time telling printables / activities! Many thanks! 😍

❄️ Frozen inspired Snow Globe ❄️ We found these great plastic globes @michaelsstores and Karter loved making this snow globe with a foam Olaf and Sven piece from her art collection! I laminated a picture of her from Halloween dressed as Elsa and used a hot glue gun to attach her and the foam piece to the inside of the lid. We used one bottle of clear @elmersproducts glue to “thicken” the water and help the glitter settle slower, a tip inspired by the @acraftyliving Calming Bottles 👍👍 Then we added glitter and sequins for the ❄️🌨 So much fun!! 🎄

Today's activity is inspired by @the_harmony_tree_house - Did you see the reindeer they made? They brought a huge smile to my face and I know little D is gonna be thrilled to make bring those little cuties to life. @the_harmony_tree_house was the major source of inspiration for our activity a day for Advent. As always Heidi you make our days brighter, sending sunshine and rainbows from Austrailia to hearts here in FL, USA ❤ .

Ho Ho Ho 🎅🏻 I'm feeling Merry! We've got SIX days of giveaways ahead! 🤗I can't wait to announce the first one this evening 👍🏻 Make sure you're following my original account (@munchkins_and_moms) so you don't miss them! (Want a clue as to what we might be giving away over the next six days? 🤔Click the link in my bio and read over our favorite non-toy gift ideas 😁

I swear when I set the 10-second camera timer the toddler was looking at the camera and the baby wasn't crying!⠀
This week my husband returned to work and so it was my first full week riding solo with these two monkeys. I don't know how long I'll have as a stay at home mom before I have to return to work, and so my goal is to try to have fun with it, have a sense of humor with moments like this, and of course, be playful.⠀
My amazing husband has even encouraged this. On my first day solo, he said "I don't care how dirty the house is when I get home. Just connect with our boys and enjoy it."⠀
They'll be adults in the blink of an eye. I don't want to miss it.

@Regranned from @thekids_place - Painting with Flour Paint and Kitchen Utensils • 🎨 Here’s a little throwback for you all today. Our favorite way to paint is with our homemade flour paint (flour and water + food coloring) and kitchen utensils! Your little ones will have so much fun flinging paint and splattering the color across the page. This is best done outdoors on a large sheet of paper or cardboard, with something underneath to contain the mess 😉. #TheKidsPlay - #regrann

We are so excited for tomorrow I am preaching an Illustrated message and the children’s ministry is assisting. They are all dressed up and ready to say their parts as we tell... “The TRUE Christmas story.”

🎄Contact Paper #christmastree🎄We put this up a couple weeks ago, and both kids have had fun sticking everything to it everyday! Initially it started out as a shape matching activity (swipe to see), then turned into open-ended play. 🙌🏼Also a good way to use up random scraps - can you spot the chameleon & fish? My daughter won’t let me take this tree down! 😂#ChalkAcademy

👚👕👖👟🧢I’m in the process of redesigning the website and know I should probably lay low, but I’m too excited about sharing our pretend play clothing flashcards! 😇These free printables are available in Chinese (simplified & traditional), English, & Korean, and you can read about different ways to learn & play with them on my website. 🌐https://chalkacademy.com/clothing-flashcards/ #ChalkAcademy

✨[FEATURED] We always make our own playdough. You can choose the colour, add scents and of course glitter! This Frozen inspired playdough is perfect for our SPARKLES theme this week! ✨ (you can find our recipe by searching “sensory playdough” on our website)

Snowflakes ❄️ Buddy our Elf was at it again asking the kids to make snowflakes! He even joined in on the fun and made a snowflake for when the kids woke up 🙌🏼. They were so excited and asked if we could make it at 6:30am. A little early for me, but how could I say no to some creative art 🤷🏼‍♀️🎨
.
Here were the simple materials we used:
📍snowflake pasta from Trader Joe's that I dyed different colors
📍colored craft sticks
📍confetti stars
📍glitter ✨
.
I put glue down on each of the craft sticks and let them create. It was also great fine motor skills to push down the pasta for it to really stick.
.
We also added a craft Christmas tree to the mix🎄swipe 👈🏻
.
Now, the big question...what to do with these beauties? 🤷🏼‍♀️
📌Turn them into ornaments?🎄
📌Give them out to family as presents?🎁
📌Keep them all to myself 😂
.
Open to other suggestions! #osk_diyxmas

J was super excited about my new game "Can you follow the instructions?" (see my previous post). We had so much fun trying to remember what to do and I must say, sometimes, the simple is the best. We do not always need to play with the fancy toys with sound and light effects.
.
I think it would be a great game to play as a family too especially during the upcoming holidays.

Pinecone reindeer ornament. 🦌🎄✨ Making things from nature is one of my favorite! We turned a beautiful pinecone into a red nose reindeer. ❤️ With the help of a glue gun, red pom pom, brown pipe cleaners and of course, googly eyes!

Christmas 🎄 Sensory Bin
Santa 🎅 Claus is coming to rock 🔔around the Christmas tree while dreaming of a white Christmas ❄️
.
Don't you just love all the classic holiday songs 🎵...I know I do 🙋🏼and where my inspiration came from for this JOLLY and oh, so MAGICALLY sensory bin!
.
Here are some of our materials:
📍colored rice
📍marshmallows ❄️
📍pine trees 🌲
📍Christmas cupcake liners
📍play dough with cookie cutters
📍wrapping paper
📍embellishments from #Michaels (pine cones, ornaments, presents, jingle bells)
.
Blast that Christmas music in the background and let the kiddos feel that Christmas spirit!
.
You don't want to miss our videos...swipe 👈🏻. My oldest took it upon himself to unwrap those presents to see what was inside 🤦🏼‍♀️and you'll never believe what he made 🤷🏼‍♀️sometimes you just have to roll with it. The look 👀 on his face says it all 🙌🏼
.
I also put together a simple Christmas chest for the little ones to participate in too (last picture shown) just be sure they don't put anything in their mouth 🎄Happy Holidays! ~Karey #osk_diyxmas

I finally did a #SmocksOn inspired project! This weeks theme is to #GetCreativeWith holiday crafts.⠀
Our tree star broke, and with a newborn around, we haven't been able to get out to get a new one. So I made one with my toddler!⠀
First, we finger painted all over a paper. This sounds simple, but my neat freak child wanted to wash his hands every 30 seconds! After that dried I cut out 2 stars for the front and back, then he sprinkled gold star glitter all over them. He LOVED that part. While he napped I used washi tape around the edges to connect the front and back, stuck a toilet paper roll in it, and then stuck it on the tree. He was absolutely giddy to see his project on the top of the tree when he woke up! Skills developed: fine motor, sensory processing, confidence & pride, and hopefully over his ocd about clean hands! (A little?)

Hanukkah Melting Menorah// To continue exploring Hanukkah today we set out to do a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activity. Through the process of experimenting and exploring the children are using creative and critical thinking skills. We discussed the meaning of the Menorah with the children, there are eight holders (one for each night of Hanukkah) and a center shamash candle. The shamash is the ‘attendant’ candle – the one that you use to light the others. Next we asked the children can you make a menorah with ice cubes? We encouraged the children to explore and experiment with the engineering aspect of it.The ice cubes were frozen with Colorations® Liquid Water Colors from @DiscountSchoolSupply. They began to stack the cubes in various ways, counting out the nine total candles, expierencing a lot of trial & error, discover color mixing, and seeing the cubes go from a solid to liquid state. #preschool #ilovealameda #alamedaca #earlylearning101 #thekidsplay #bestofalameda #sensoryplay #smartlittlestars #tactileplay #ctinquiry #powerofplay52 #powerofplay #earlychildhoodeducation #earlylearning #getcreativewith #steameducation

Theme: Holiday Cheer & Review 🎄🎁🎄


Objective: Sticker Tree Decorating


Here’s what we did:
1. This was a 2 day activity. Day 1 we used green water color to completely paint 3 white sheets of paper 2. Then let dry over night.
2. Day 2, draw some Christmas Trees on the green paper. (Note to self, you are terrible at drawing Xmas trees 😬, next time print one out or trace it 😂). 3. In a sectioned tray offer a variety of different holiday stickers to little Miss 2.5 and ask for her help in decorating the trees!
4. Vocabulary practice: Talk about the different stickers & about where she was placing them (example: high, low, near another, on tree, off the tree). •

Special thanks to @busytoddler for this festive idea! •

"Can you follow instructions?" activity set - available from my Facebook shop
.
"Touch your shoulders, Point to the door, Name an animal"
.
Randomly draw a popsicle from each of the categories (including actions, words, and more complicated directions), read aloud to your little one and ask him to do what he was told. This simple game allows your little one to practice listening and following instructions, memory, vocabs etc. When starting out you may want to give the directions and then show your child what you want him to do. For example, tell him "jump" and then you physically jump. This will give him a visual. This is helpful as you start increase the complexity of the directions.
.
Start off with two step directions (i.e. 2 popsicles), then move to more popsicles for advanced challenge.
.
Join in the game and play together with your little one for extra fun! No Prep needed!!

Easy peasy modern Christmas trees! 🌲🖤 We got super lucky and won an amazing giveaway by @lovelemoncraft a box full of amazing supplies! So all I’ve been thinking lately is what to make out of those cool things! The first thing I wanted to do is come up with a a way to use paper pennants (other thank making a banner.) We got a pad with fun double sided colors and prints, so I decided to make them into Christmas trees by just folding them in half and gluing the sides together. Super easy! But also super pretty! Thank you @lovelemoncraft!

The Popcorn Book Sensory Play// To begin this sensory exploration we read the story The Popcorn Book by Tomie de Paola. To continue and expand the literacy experience we set the intention with going the multi-sensory route due to the fact that children learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses. The sensory bin was filled with kernels and funnels to represent the story. When children play with a sensory bins they are playing with a variety of materials and textures which stimulate the mind and body through the tactile experience. By giving children the opportunity to investigate materials with just a little bit of knowledge from reading the story we are helping them develop and refine their cognitive, social and emotional, physical, creative and linguistic skills. Our ultimate goal for the sensory bin is to tie it in with literacy experiences in order to further solidify any new words or language to children that come from reading the book. This helped them in practice listening skills, comprehension skills, and fostered imaginary play. #preschool #ilovealameda #alamedaca #earlylearning101 #thekidsplay #bestofalameda #sensoryplay #smartlittlestars #tactileplay #ctinquiry #powerofplay52 #powerofplay #earlychildhoodeducation #earlylearning #getcreativewith

I loved using this plastic deviled egg platter my mom got us from the dollar store to hold all the loose parts 🙌🏻 play dough recipe is on the blog and head over to @mydayswithkids for a fun gift idea for it! #mydayswithkids #christmasactivities

🎄Re-sharing one of our favorite activities from this time last year using one of Karter’s Favorite Things, foamy bathtub letters!! 🎄 ✨ Two more hours to enter our 10K Giveaway!!!!!! ✨ Bath time Christmas tree!!!! 🎄🛁🎄 I used a bath crayon, shaving cream and a little green food color to set up this fun invitation to play! Karter loved feeling the foamy tree, sticking on her number & letter "ornaments" and tracing the shapes they made ❤🎄

🎄My kids have been playing with these felt Christmas trees everyday. ☺️ I love this activity because it promotes open-ended creativity & fine-motor skills. Thanks @figmentcreative for the great idea! #ChalkAcademy #Christmascraft

👑 老大 made these crowns last weekend 😍 I wrote 耶稣 (yēsū / Jesus) & 王 (wǎng / king) in Chinese & English, and she pasted pearl stickers on the text and decorated with glitter glue.✨Pearl stickers are great for fine motor skills while reinforcing word recognition! 🙌🏼 Swipe ➡️ to see how they turned out. Of course, all of that is secondary to learning about 耶稣 and the true meaning of Christmas. Thanks @starry_atelier for inspiring us to do a #biblecraft! #ChalkAcademy #christmascraft

Fuzzy socks and five frame math is where it's at right now 🖐🏻 (see this action in my stories 💕) Also, anyone else addicted to fuzzy socks? I pretty much live in them all winter 😁

Thanks Beth @dayswithgrey for your activity cards and this idea! 😘

WASHI TAPE 🌲
Rip it, stick it, wear it!! We did this one a while back but she still asks for the tape!
Hhmm, I wonder why?! 😏
.
If you do nothing else, quickly cut a triangle shape out of old cardboard 👌
throw in some washi tape 👌
scissors 👌
and you have yourself a whole cup of coffee to drink in peace ☕ .

After they finishing sticking it all over the tree 🌲 they start decorating themselves!🙊 🙌
