When I saw this I had to take a picture!
And then I knew - it is time for more stimulation.
My 23 month old can fit all the pieces of his 3 wooden puzzles in the right spots with no help. He is analytical and methodical. He takes things out and likes to put them back in their proper spot (I just wish he would do this with his toys more often).
So I've made some playdough
And he has water color and crayons.
And this week we're starting our "preschool" time back up again. I tried this with him about six months ago and it was a no-go. He wasn't ready for it and he didn't like it. But I can see now that he is ready.
Tuesday: Play Dough - making shapes and finding the ones that match
Wednesday: This is my laundry day - so we'll sort socks.
Thursday: Can we say ball? He loves them and has tons of them. So we're playing with balls on Thursday
(We're naming objects since we're still in the babbling stage. Being bi-lingual and a first born - his speech is delayed a bit.)
Friday: Matching Shapes cards. I am going to make 2 sets of shape flash cards - and we'll match the right shapes together.
Monday: Z worked yesterday but has today off, so I'm making a baked chicken with "mlinci" (this is a cracker like bread that is broken into pieces and soaked with the juices of the chicken), mashed potatoes and a salad
Wednesday: Pork Wine Goulash with Polenta (Be watching for that recipe)
Saturday: Waffles and Fried eggs
, Vegetable rice, and Meatloaf
Thank you for sharing...
