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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
