baby activities this week

Baby puzzles; i printed some family pics for L and cut them in half, and glued them to the cereal box carboard

Picture shapes: i was inspired by Elise's hearts.. i made them in shapes (circle, square, triangle and heart) picked 4 dif. colors and some dif. textures... some have a bell inside others have a bell outside (hanging) the kids loveeed them!!! david has been playing with them as much as leah...

some of the ways we will use the shapes

- naming all the people for leah to locate the particular person

- arrange family members from olderst to youngest

- organize them in females, males, kids

- sort by color

- sort by shape

Wow, your shapes look bright and fun. I am so happy to hear that your children are enjoying them. We're still getting ours out regularly. I think they would make great gifts as well.

What a great idea! I think I'm going to have to try some adaptation of it. It would be great to find a way for my daughter to "see" the many relatives who can only love her from afar.
