Pompom Toilet Paper Roll Activity

 Pompom Toilet Paper Roll Activity Are you ready for another simple toddler activity? Well good, you're in luck! I found this pom pom toilet paper roll activity on Pinterest . This activity is perfect for those 12 months and older. As always please complete all activities with adult supervision. I loved the look of the activity and the skills that it works on, so I started saving up some toilet paper and paper towel holders. After a week or so I was ready to go! Here's what you'll need: Toilet paper and/or paper towel cardboard holders Blue painter's tape (it's safe for your walls) Pompoms, small styrofoam balls, and/or cotton balls We found that the paper towel rolls seemed to work best. Maci squished a few of the toilet paper holders and the items would get stuck inside the holder. I was hoping that I had colorful pompoms from my teaching days and I did, but they were small enough that I was worried that Maci might choke on them. So we opted for small styrofoam ba

The Benefits of Puzzles for Toddlers

 The Benefits of Puzzles for Toddlers Are you looking for an easy inexpensive activity to keep your little one entertained? Well look no further. Puzzles are a great choice and something that can be enjoyed from childhood to adulthood. I have found that puzzles can be a great way to keep toddlers and young children entertained while also serving an educational purpose. Puzzles allow us to exercise our minds and to challenge our thinking. Here are three main skills for early childhood development that your child will be building on when working with puzzles. Physical Skills Hand-Eye Coordination: When working with puzzles  your child will find a correlation between what their eyes see and what their hands do. Fine Motor Skills: Your child will be working on developing their fine motor skills by using  small and precise movements to put the pieces where they need to go. Buying chunky puzzles or puzzles with knobs on the pieces might be a good place to start for a younger child.  Cognitiv

Jello Dig

Jello Dig Sensory Activity I have recently been looking for new ways to entertain my little one. I feel like she has been playing with the same toys for over 5 months. She seems to feel it too. I do try to rotate her toys so she has a variety to play with. But, I decided it was time to go on Pinterest to search for a few activities I could complete with Maci. I searched for activities that had little prep and possibly things that I already had at home. Each week I would like to complete a new activity. Not only is this fun for Maci, but for me too! Our first activity we tried was the Jello Dig. This is a great sensory activity for children 6 months to 5 years old. Here are some of the supplies you will need: throwaway aluminum tin (purchased ours from the dollar store), package of gelatin, a few of your child's favorite plastic toys (I used Maci's pacifier, four different shapes from her shape sorter, one of her spoons, and teething carrot), apron/bib, digging utensi
