As I posted here, I'm revisiting some activities I originally did with Cutie Pie and am having fun introducing them to Sweet Pea!
One such thing is the Geoboard, which I originally posted about here. Great fine motor and coordination manipulative! It also makes a nice quiet time activity or 'busy bag'.
Cutie Pie really liked this at first, but slowly his interest waned. I set it aside and it occasionally made an appearance, but not until recently was it met with enthusiasm. Sweet Pea can't get enough of it!
He is enjoying making shapes, trying to create pretend scenes (making a square and saying it's a train wheel or house) and counting how many bands he can attach to the board. Basically, he LOVES it!
If you haven't already made one for your kiddo, I encourage you to. It's cheap and easy to make! If your child loves it as much as Sweet Pea, it'll be totally worth it! I think I might be making a larger one with nails instead of tacks, and maybe even elicit Sweet Pea's help!
