What’s in the Box Wednesday: Teeny Tot

What’s the Teeny Tiny Tot been up to these days? Workboxes of course!

Here’s her line up and some in action:

1. Her new Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Piggy Bank


Numbers Puzzle


2. Bead sorting. I found this tiny ice cube tray at Wal-mart and couldn’t resist getting it for school! It’s the perfect size for sorting little beads into:


3. Felt Strawberries. We used chopsticks to transfer the strawberries to bowls.


4. Dice to stack, roll, toss?


5. Stacking Cups, to, um, stack?


6. Leapfrog Fridge Phonics to drive Mommy crazy.


7. Stickers and paper, this is one of her favorite boxes, she loves to put stickers on things.


8. Pom-poms, bowls and measuring cups to scoop.


Coloring book, I did tell her to ‘do it on your desk’, guess she’s a literal type person.


Magnets, she loves to put the magnets all over the white board, too bad she doesn’t like to take them back off again!


Biggie Beads by Fun Fusion and a Water Bottle. She loved to put the little beads in the bottle then shake them back out again!


Our fun magnetic fish puzzle. I think I got this from Target in the educational toys section, she loves it!


That’s what we’ve been up to this week, feel free to link up with your boxes!

    I chuckled at the leapfrog! and your first comments – every letter makes a sound….Now that our tot is 4, she starts her morning by using her fridge magnets, finds her day of the week on sentence strips, and copies with leapfrog and other fridge magnets to help keep her engaged.

    ON the desk! Literal child. We went on an overnight field trip and I am still catching up today!

    I just linked through to your blog from Mama Jenns – and I must say: What a brilliant blog – I'm so glad I found it. I am now 'following' you and look forward to what you post (especially the Teeny Tot stuff as she looks pretty close in age to my Mini Moo!). Best wishes x

    What great ideas. And I love the thought of using household items to teach. Also, that leap frog fridge phonics thing is great. My s-i-l uses it with my nephew who is autistic.

    She's so cute up on that desk! The leapfrog farm set drives me crazy! LOL
