๐Ÿฉ Please, Mr. Panda ๐Ÿผ Doughnut Craft



๐Ÿฉ Please, Mr. Panda ๐Ÿผ by Steve Antony (@mrsteveantony). This is 100%, hands down, Clark’s favourite book. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป We have read it more times than I can count (we never get sick of it) and he has it memorized! He thinks all pandas have doughnuts ๐Ÿผ=๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ˜. When he learned to say please, he would always say “Please, Mr. Panda”. For example... Clark, do you want me to push you in the swing? “YES!” What do you say?... “Please, Mr. Panda” If you haven’t read this book, you MUST - Clark insists. I made these doughnuts out of cardboard for him to play with and he was so thrilled. ๐Ÿฉ We have been acting out the book, talking about colours, counting, stacking, etc. But mostly, he’s been trying to “feed them” to our cats ๐Ÿ˜น. I also cut a few more for him to paint however he prefers! ❤️๐Ÿผ๐Ÿฉ

Painting with Water๐Ÿ’ฆ



I’d like to take credit for this idea but... it was all Clark ๐Ÿ˜ He insisted that we take his paintbrushes outside the other day and he has been enjoying them ever since! It’s been so stinkin’ hot ☀️ that means pretty much all play = water play ๐Ÿ’ฆ so this was loads of fun. Clark loved watching his shapes disappear! ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ”ตInside/Outside the Circle๐Ÿ”ด


I let Clark pick a sticker and then told him to put it inside or outside of a circle. We also practiced big vs. small. He loved it and once again I was so thrilled to have my @thecurioustot activity plans to pull from today. Learning recap: Prepositions ✔️ Size ✔️ Shapes✔️ Fine Motor Practice ✔️ FUN ✔️

๐Ÿ”ดCircles in the Sand Sensory Bin๐Ÿ”ต


This week we started a shapes theme from our summer units made by @thecurioustot ๐Ÿ’• Clark actually suggested (aka insisted) that we bring his paintbrushes outside this morning and my wheels  started turning. I quickly cut out some foam circles (once again thank you @weneedmoreglitter for inspiring all of the foam sheet play ๐Ÿ˜˜) and scooped some sand over them. Then Clark was able to find them by using his paintbrushes! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 


๐Ÿ”  Repositional Poster Letters ๐Ÿ” 


Clark’s been showing an interest in letters so I thought I’d let him explore the letters in his name. ๐Ÿ’•These letters have a post-it type backing and can be repositioned. I got a great deal on them years ago ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ We named the letters and then made what looked like a graph. His favourite part was pulling them all off, of course!!!

๐ŸŒˆDyed Pasta๐ŸŒˆ



Clark enjoyed sorting by colour - he even helped me sort them into bags at the end ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Do you use liquid water colours to dye your sensory fillers? Life changing! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Thank you to Tracy from @thecurioustot who introduced them to me. If you want to get your own set, follow the link in her profile! ๐Ÿ’• Can you tell which colour I DIDN’T dye with liquid watercolour? Comment below with your guess ๐Ÿ˜˜

๐Ÿ”ปSticky Wall๐Ÿ”บ


Contact Paper is the perfect activity to pull out on a rainy day. Clark knows all of his basic colours so recently his interest has turned to shapes! ๐Ÿ’• For whatever reason, our cat ๐Ÿˆ also thought this activity was fun. I quickly cut out the letters in his name when he asked for “abcs” and helped him put them on in order. ๐Ÿ”  Surprisingly, he didn’t try to take any shapes off (which he does with stickers ๐Ÿ˜)
