Monthly Archives: April 2011

….soon to return!

Just a quick note to say we are still here, just super busy with moving which will be all done this weekend. I’m hoping to be back into a somewhat normal routine (and with internet connection) by the second week of May. Hope everyone had a great Easter!


April Activities!

I have gone through and updated some of Mya’s activity trays. Some of them were getting too simple for her so I thought I would add a higher level of difficulty to a couple. She was very excited to wake for her nap and see the Easter display all set to go complete with new activities.

A new Easter book. Its pretty great, focusing on colours and counting. I also laid out some Easter related puzzle flashcards (duck, rabbit, eggs etc)

This isn’t really a new activity, but it is a favourite of Mya’s. I did pick up a new and smaller piggybank as the old one had a tragic fall that didn’t end well.

Colour matching activity. I have her match foam flowers to the construction paper. We also try counting the flowers.

A new beading activity. Mya has pretty good fine motor skills, but found the tinier beads almost too difficult to manage, but with practice and repetition she has gotten better in just a few days.

A simple, yet fun activity. She enjoys transferring the eggs into the carton or cups. I get her to place matching colours across from each other in the carton, something she still needs help with.

Don’t be fooled by this face…she thinks she’s smiling 🙂

A happy week to all!
