We discovered Coco Village about 2 years ago when I was searching for a birthday present for my daughter’s first birthday. I saw a post for a Coco Village kitchen bundle and I bought it. I’m so glad I did, because my daughter has loved playing with it. To date it is her favorite toy to play with and I love how it inspires her imagination.                    Coco Village gifted us these fire station toys. I love that these items are high quality, so I know that they will last for the years to come. They are high quality wooden toys. These toys ar

Tape Rescue Activity

 

Tape Rescue Activity for Your Little!

While late night surfing Pinterest I came across this tape rescue or rescue-the-toy activity. Like the other activities I have completed I like how this activity uses items from around the house, it's low prep, and so much fun!

I have seen this activity completed in a variety of ways. You can have your little one try it out in a highchair, try it vertically by taping items on the wall, tape items to a table, and/or like I did by taping items to a cookie sheet. 

I would recommend this activity for those 10 months + and as always please use adult supervision with all activities!

The Setup


Materials

(This page contains affiliate links)

Lay the items down where you would like them and then place about a 4-5 inch piece of tape over them. If you are trying this activity out vertically then you can place the tape on the item and then tape it to the wall where the child can reach.

The Goal

The goal of this activity is for your little one to use their strong little fingers to remove the tape in order to free the item. They will need to pull the tape up, getting the tape off of the animal, and then hand the tape to the supervising adult. That is a lot of steps for your little one!



Skills Your Child is Working on

Rescuing items from tape sounds as simple as that, but your child is working on many complex skills by completing this simple activity. Here is a list of skills that your child will be working on during this fun activity:

  • Fine Motor Skills
    • Your little one will work on those small muscles, their little fingers. This will help for when they start writing and coloring. Let's strengthen those little hands. 
  • Hand eye coordination
    • Their hands will have to work with what they are seeing.
  • Problem Solving
    • Your child will have to think through how to remove the tape from the items. This might take some modeling from the supervising adult.
  • Vocabulary
    • Talk with your child as you are completing the activity. "How can you remove the tape from the green frog?", "There are three green frogs that are trapped by the blue tape.", "Which item are you going to rescue next?"
                   



Try This Activity at Home

We had so much fun completing this activity! When my little one had rescued all the items I decided to tear 2 inch strips of tape and place them around the edge of the pan. I then had my little one remove those pieces of tape. 

There are endless possibilities  with this activity. I hope you will give it a try and let me know how it goes!

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
