A Little Learning For Two

I loved this post on House Of Baby Piranha about Magic Colour Drinks awhile ago and wanted to try it out as a water play activity. It was finally warm enough today to have a go and it was very popular! Bubble didn't drink her coloured water but had an absolute ball watching the colours and then mixing them together. WE USED: * plastic cups * plastic cutlery * food colouring * tub/bucket of water * small jug A spot of food colouring in the bottom of each cup. I set out a large tub of water…

Making a crane

There is a construction site near our house with a huge crane – we like to watch it. I have been thinking about how we could make our own crane... and I finally came up with a solution. I stored up two thick cardboard rolls (from cling wrap packs) – these are very sturdy and do not bend. I also found a narrow box from amazon which is made from thick, strong cardboard. I hunted around for another cardboard roll, this time it needed to be slightly wider (not longer) than the cling wrap rolls…

End Of The Week SLP Blues- Pre-school Language Edition

So my new job here in Chicago is at a speech and language pre-school. So far it's been crazy busy, but I'm realizing everyday that it's a really great fit for me. I've always loved working with the little guys and if you can imagine I actually have time built in my schedule for lesson planning (I know, right?!?) Needless to say the lesson planning block is one of the major highlights of my day. I feel like I can really contribute some great ideas during that time. I was perusing Pinterest…

Tipping Tiger Toilet Paper Tube Craft for Family Game Night

We found the basic idea for this game/craft in the book, Gizmos & Gadgets Creating Science Contraptions That Work (& Knowing Why), by Jill Frankel Hauser. We dolled ours up a bit with a printout of a template for a tiger toilet paper tube craft from DLTK-Kids (a site that all parents of preschoolers should visit). It's a craft, that becomes a game, or a science project, or a math activity. And best of all, it's fun for a wide range of ages. If you want to make one, you'll need: A toilet…
