I thought this heart tray would look cute with the mini cupcake papers because it reminded me of tarts. Those are just conversation hearts the girls need to tong (using my little bamboo tongs I forgot I had) one by one into the papers.
I had seen others mention the following activity, but it was so many and I really don't remember who. I had actually given up finding the heart picks in our rural area. We have a Family Dollar and a Dollar General and neither had them. Finally found them at a Dollar Tree an hour away.
I found these foam beads while we were shopping the other day and Tabitha couldn't wait to use them. She has used them, thinks it is fun to stack them on the needle that comes with the beads. (The needle has a rounded end to make it safe)
In order to make a nice activity out of it, I decided to
make some pattern cards.
And, though we are focusing on Qq and hearts this week, I changed up the spooning a little differently:
(Figured they look like snowballs, which will be, according to the weather forecast, appropriate this week.
This small shelf is all I have right now to put the materials on, so I do have to change up quite a bit.
I realize it is now Tuesday (I fell asleep on the couch last night before being able to post) but here is the link for One Hook Wonder and the Montessori Monday so you can take a look at what others are doing.
