Oh, the joys of simple activities! This was a huge hit and allowed Little Brother and me to spend lots of time playing, laughing, and singing together.
For this activity, I used a giraffe peg hanger that currently resides on the wall in Little Brother’s bedroom. I had originally planned to use our baby links (like these), but I couldn’t find ours. So I used our cookie cutters instead…and it actually worked out wonderfully because it gave us an opportunity to talk about shapes!
Here’s what you’ll need: a peg hanger and either cookie cutter or baby links.
Just lay out the cookie cutters (or links) and show your child how to sort them by color.
We also talked abou the shapes of the cookie cutters and even sang some songs (like “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” while looking at the star cookie cutter). We didn’t spend a lot of time talking about shapes because this isn’t something I am too concerned about him knowing at 22 months…but it never helps to make a mention here and there.
What’s your child’s favorite simple activity???
