Scooping, Slotting, Straws & Sorting

Using Pom Poms, Little One was supposed to scoop them and place them into the various compartments.
Seems easy, no?
Next stop: Slotting in cards. Really easy for him as I now make him do it for those car park vending machines. :)

Another activity that Missus had devise for Little One was basically, matching Alphabets to the Animals.
It was pretty much a hit and miss on many levels. If it was Marine Life, he'll score A+. Others...
Playing with Straws was another simple and extremely low cost activity. Seriously, just keep the straws that you get... and since they can come in various sizes in length AND diameter, they make great toys too.

And so, it entertained him for quite a while.
Finally, these are sorters from Hape. Which he mastered very quickly as it was one of his first sorting toys, but er thought we'd let him play with it after some time of ... forgetting it. :)

The End.

Play-Doh, Nuts and Bolts

So who doesn't like Play-Doh? :)
Little One certainly played with it for an hour or so, along with a vitamin container to make the prints.
Needless to say, he, as usual, found other uses or ways to play first until finally...
"I'm poking, I'm poking..."
Hmmmmm... what can I poke with this?
As you can see as well, a few pieces of Pasta to enhance his play experience... along with a cotton bud.
Actually, the cotton bud was used to push the Play-Doh that had lodge itself into the Pasta. He decided he would have more fun with it doing something else.

Now THAT's what he's supposed to do with the Pasta and Play-Doh... :)
As you can see, there were only 2 colours and so, that means, only 2 tubs for him as more would have driven him hyper!
Next up, was the Duktig Tools set from Ikea. It contains much more than this, but we decided to just let him deal with Nuts and Bolts first.
Teach him how to screw. But he already has learned that eons ago...
But as long as it entertains him... so what?

The End.

Shark Filled Post!

Little One has been nothing short of bewitched over Sharks. And for 2017, his headmistress had a shark costume for his annual recital then....
