But I have realized that my writing has been lacking....due to spending so much time as Play At Home Mom (which I love). So, this week I will be dedicating to updating you all on the many projects & activities that I have talked about in the past & have failed to mention in awhile!
First, let me start with updating you on one of our favorite sensory play activities that I have NEVER blogged about, yet we play it almost once a week....if not more! I discovered this activity on one of my favorite blogs, http://playathomemom3.blogspot.com/. We have been playing with WATER BEADS ever since February of this year, and each month I try to bring out a new color of water beads for our play. This past month, however, I was tired of all of my containers, so I blended them all together into on big Water Bead Box......like our Rice Box but with water beads. These are so inexpensive, and I found mine in the craft aisle at Walmart in a variety of colors. Here are a few pictures of us playing with the Water Bead Box this past week.
|Here's Ethan running his hands through the water beads. This box contains many colors including pink (Feb), green (Mar), blue (Apr), and clear (May). I like having more beads in our box...I'm glad I combined them!|
|Ethan finding another frog! This is so great for Ethan because he can't stand to get his hands messy/dirty, but he will do this!|
|We do this at the kitchen table with my messy play tablecloth over our table. Ethan always chooses to stand instead of sitting for this activity.|
|These are some party store coins that I found in March for St. Patty's Day. These are great for hiding in the water bead box because they aren't as easy to see with your eyes.|
|Ethan finding the "gold doubloons"...as he calls them from Disney Jake & The Neverland Pirates cartoon.|
