It was hard to have 1-to-1 play based learning with Sweet Butterfly after Busy Bee was born. Whenever possible, I tried to introduce some activities with certain learning objectives in mind. These were ad-hoc activities which I had set up in the spur of the moment and when Busy Bee was napping.
We started with some simple and mess free activities
Learning objectives: Creativity, Fine Motor, Patience, Story Telling.
Sticky Door Alphabet Flowers
Learning Objectives: Alphabets, Matching, Letter Sounds
Pompom Sensory Box (an old idea)
Learning Objectives: Sorting, Imaginative Play
Hello Kitty File Folder Game
Learning Objectives: Counting, Sorting, Puzzle
Hole Punching (Idea from Picklebums)
Learning Objectives: Build hand and arm muscles
Learning Objectives: Alphabets, Building according to picture
Princess Printable Pack
Learning Objectives: Maths, 1-to-1 Correspondence, Colours
Sometimes, Busy Bee needed our attention and I felt too tired to prepare activities. So we just lazed around and play.
Learning Objectives: Siblings Bonding
At times, I felt like a big energy ball, so we did a little more messy stuffs.
Learning Objectives: Cooking
Learning Objectives: Hand-eye Coordination
Learning Objectives: Hand-eye Coordination, Fine Motor
Super Soft Play Dough
Learning Objectives: Imaginative Play, Fine Motor
Painting An Ark
Learning Objectives: Fine Motor, Arm Muscles, Colours
And so, we managed, with lots of fun.
