Opportunities for play and learning are all around us.. even in your cutlery drawer! Organising and sorting a collection, noticing differences and similarities and making patterns.. what a great introduction to a few mathematical concepts!
Here’s a fun baby play idea – explore “same” and “different”, different textures.. or noises different spoons make, or even different temperatures that spoons have (you could use a cup of cold water and a lukewarm one for this). Have fun!
Fruit and spoon races require a lot of concentration and balance from these little hands. By providing a range of different sized fruits and spoons, you can turn these “races” into a really fun, rewarding activity!
Let’s practice hand-eye coordination, concentration and balance by scooping, trasferring and pouring. In this video, we are using rice, but you could use lentils, pasta or even small toys. Get creative!
It all started with a spoon.. In this video we explore the importance of some day-to-day objects that live in our kitchens and the learning opportunities that come when they become fanastic toys for babies or toddlers.
