This was our last week with of our "Love" theme. We didn't do too many "love" activities because we had too many appointments. LOL
Kayleigh has been very, very, very interested in cutting. But our scissors haven't been a remote possibility for her. So I bought her some new ones. These and these. We tried them both and my conclusion is that she's just not developmentally ready for cutting. But that's okay, we'll keep practicing. She liked them anyway.
The spring-action scissors worked the best. I held the paper for her (well not in this picture because I was holding the camera LOL) and tried to get her to squeeze the scissors. She really just wants to stab the paper with them. But I helped her squeeze too so she got a few cuts.
And the spring action.
Once we had cut enough paper, I gave her a glue stick and let her paste for a while. Glue sticks make her happy.
So do "sticks." We used heart "sticks" so now her project fits into our love them. LOL
Her finished product.
I made her a heart shaped lacing card. It went well for the first 3 minutes.
She loves the pom pom magnets I made. So she did an A magnet page and a heart magnet page.
This activity she picked out herself. Counting bears. I got out the sorting mat. She matched them correctly, at first, then her devious streak came out and she put them all over. LOL
And she practiced her unzipping. During breakfast. LOL
