Tot School: Colors!

Tot School shelf for the week...

1. Homemade Montessori Color Tablets

Simply made out of cardboard, paint chips from Lowe's, and Mod Podge.

Matching up the color tablets.

The cat lacing card came in a box of lacing cards from Target last Christmas on the dollar aisle! The wooden cheese and mouse was a yard sale find, for only 50 cents!

Milestones from the week...

Learning and mastering how to use scissors! I found these AMAZING scissors that are PERFECT for beginners!

Paper was a little flimsy for her to hold and cut, so I gave her craft foam.

Long strips of craft foam...I drew multiple lines on each strip for her to cut. This was her FAVORITE activity of the week!

Adding legs to her floating heads!

  1. Wow what an awesome week!! I love all the color activities! And I never thought of using craft foam for cutting. I'll have to try that with my son!

  2. What a great learning week. I keep things I would love to do list next to me as I look at blogs and my pen was working like mad while reading your post! My son would love many of these things. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me!!!

  3. Your daughter must have loved all the colour activities you provided! I love the cutting practice. I think I will look into those scissors! We have tried normal ones aimed at kids but they are too difficult for my little one to manage.
