KINAESTHETIC play with some KITCHEN utensils with #letsplayatoz_k ⭐️
.
We love playdough in our house. There are just endless learning activities that you can explore with it!
.
Today Oliver practised developing his gross motor skills by pressing different utensils into the playdough. The colander was particularly tricky to push onto the playdough but was a great strengthening activity!
.
Other learning activities:
⭐️Oliver enjoyed putting balls into each of the sections in the cupcake baking tray and counting how many he had.
⭐️Made a big and small ball and we discussed which one was big and small
⭐️Discussed action words e.g. Push, pull, roll etc
⭐️Created a scene/ some objects with the playdough to use for some imaginative play -  fish in a sea! 🌊 🐟
.
⬆️For slightly older ones you could explore the different shapes that the different kitchen utensils make
.
Why not see what the other #letsplayatoz_k team is getting up to!

Notice I didn’t say exercise!  You can’t argue the benefits of cardio & strength training.  Everyone should be on this train already!  If not this may be a place to start.  If you are exercising this approach will be key for you to drive consistency & know you are moving with more precision towards your goals!
——
What about when you are way too busy with work or the kids or life to fit in a gym session?  Can you do a 1 minute or 5 minute session that makes you feel better about yourself & feel better for tomorrow?
When you have been sitting at a meeting for 3 hours do you have small movements that you are confident can make you fee less stiff?
When you are traveling on a plane can you stand up every hour & do a couple drills that prevent your low back from acting up?
When you wake up with a stiff neck do you have goto movements to recover faster?
Are you able to target your daily aches & pains currently or do you just have to wait & pray?
Are you not exercising because every time you do something hurts?
Do you feel like you are going through the motions each day & with exercise?
Do you know that you need to strengthen your low back because of back pain, but when you do it makes it worse, so you stop?
Have you been saying I will start exercising soon, but know you are just telling yourself that?
——
What if for less than $1/day I could teach you movements that are going to actually help you address your daily concerns while fitting in your busy day?

💚Playtime💜

Yesterday we spent the afternoon playing, no set ups or intentions but just free play. Now when my little ones play it can get quite messy. They like to add many elements and start with one idea and move on to another, expanding their play space. #kidsatplay
.
In the whirlwind of play they are focused and creating the most imaginative set ups eg. If you saw one of my stories you would have seen our large Grimms rainbow being used as crab legs. #openendedplay
.
The play silk area has been turned into a construction site, the magnetic tiles were being turned into race tracks and jumps and Mr 4.5yr is building a police station/zoo with duplo. I love these play session where it just looks like a whole lot of mess but really there is intent behind every piece. I was also under strict instructions not to pack away their play until they said they were finished 😉 #playwithpurpose
.
How do you feel about play mess? Can you see past the mess and see the values of play? #playislearning

I love seeing all of the fun ways to use @waytoplaytoys flexible roads! Our friends at @lubulona paired them with their town blocks and the set up is so inviting for play, isn’t it? 🚙 // #lolaandlark #waytoplay #pretendplay #kidsgifts

Normally there's a lot of imagination in our play. Today, there's just observation with our box binoculars and telescope. We saw trees, motorcycles, and neighborhoods. Kalel said HEWWO to someone and he told then all about his telescope!

Started the day as a ballet dancer, at night she transform into a super hero! Maybe tomorrow she’ll want to be a princess, a panda, a witch, a teacher, or a doctor..who knows 🤷🏻‍♀️ Whatever role she’s choosing to be, she does everything with joy 💕 #playislearning #letthekidsplay

I’m pretty pumped for this week with the girls and Matt! I love using Sunday’s to prep for the week. I try to tie any loose ends up for work, make sure we are stocked with groceries (Matt does the shopping now since🤰🏼), I prep what we need for the girls week of school and we do as much as we can as a family! This morning while I got some work done, Matt took the girls to see the Grinch. Now we are relaxing and snuggling while Lucy is napping then off to lunch at Culver’s (mmmmm!!!), Michaels to stock up on some Christmas fun (we decorate ON Thanksgiving) and then home for more family time. I have a goal of being better about our routine and habits for our health and home. These cards from @mywildoaks have been printed and ready to go for months and I finally laminated, cut them out and got them in order on our board. This is my ideal schedule for Monday. Will it happen this way? Probably not because our girls are 5 and 2, but it’s going to feel so good to take them off the board as we complete them and then I’ll reset each night. I’m going to write this order down so that each day it only changes very slightly! I’m so excited to see how much this schedule will help us!

That #homemadeplaydough she had so much coloring made the most beautiful marble pattern when she mixed it 😍 I knew it would be perfect for waves so I made this ocean #smallworldplay for her. I love creating these tiny worlds to see what stories she’ll come up with, this time her turtle and penguin were on the hunt for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches 😂

Anyone else finding themselves needing to adopt the motto, "play is not just for early childhood" ? I've been exploring ways to make time and space for older kids to get outside and play too and it's been very rewarding!

Team work makes the dream work 😂 For youngsters, sharing and taking turns can be huge challenges. But it’s funny how sometimes when you can reframe it as working together, suddenly it becomes a great game!

Ms. Jamie and Ms. Yukie’s preschool class had so much fun outside this week. There are so many benefits to children when they play outside. 
Children who play outside are overall healthier because their bodies are active. Running, jumping, climbing, and more help young children stay active and increase their gross motor skills. 
When young children play outside they are learning about the world around them and expressing themselves creatively. They are able to explore their senses and try out new sensory experiences. 
Playing outdoors helps children develop social skills and encourages them to communicate with their peers during free play. 
Outdoor play encourages independence in young children as they learn to take risks as they play. They are exploring their special awareness, trying new things, and learning to take control of their body. 
We encourage all preschoolers to spend lots of time outside. How can you incorporate more outdoor play in your child’s day? #cmpfun #cmpkids

Noah's been poorly so we've been a little slack at keeping up with the play along & today I'm poorly so it's an easy one for today's theme word CARS & we ment to do puddle painting for yesterday so we combined the two. Painty, glittery puddles, some cars, baking tray & paper!

@fandmcollege Dance as a lens through which to experience the world... how can we support each other while at the same time honoring our unique voices? “The answer is in the doing.” -Bill T Jones... always an honor to set BTJ/AZ’s Continuous Replay. #dance #community #teachingispolitical #playislearning #teachtolearn #giveback
Instagram is full of beautiful photos of #invitationstoplay that are neat, tidy, appealing to the eye and leave me wanting to create the perfect play #flatlay or #playtray.  But, that isn’t who I am and the fact of the matter is, the children in my care choose how to spend their time, have freedom to choose any materials they want to play with in any way they choose to play with them!
.
.
With those things in mind, I am inviting you to take part in a challenge I’m calling the #pureplaycollective. .
.
Tag @learning.wild with #pureplaycollective if you snap a photo of children immersed in an organic play moment.  Keep these parameters in mind as you snap away.... the play you are capturing:
1) must be child initiated
2) must be child led (no adult ideas allowed)
3) Tell us the story behind the photo! .
.
I’m excited to have these other accounts on board as part of this Pure Play Collective... give them a follow and see what the children in their care are up to!

Can’t wait see what pure play moments you can find!  I may even have a little giveaway up my sleeve to announce soon for those who take part in the challenge!

🐿MY LITTLE SQUIRREL🐿
G is like a little squirrel and has been since she was only months old. In our old house at 9 months she had a tiny cupboard that she used to squirrel away any little treasures that she found and in this house I’ll often find her rummaging in the little alcove under the stairs to find random objects to play and create with. This morning she found the cardboard box, shredded paper and tubes, turfed her poor little brother off his blanket 😂and kept adding to her collection through the day. She made a cafe, a slide, houses, a den, a balance beam, a ‘blanket collage’ (her words!) and a ‘giraffe beach’ 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ She seemed most indignant that the ice cream lady (better known as a colander) at the giraffe beach had run out of mint chocolate chip as apparently the pink giraffe (better known as a toilet roll tube) NEEDS it for his medicine...Don’t you just love it?!?! 😂😂😍😍🤷‍♀️🐿⭐️

Memory game: Animal Skin

This activity is simple cause I used the same printable cards as I used earlier (refer previous post). However I added the animal pictures to match with the skin animal. MissH always love to play memory games and she can repeat it all over again and again and again 😅 and again

Firstly, every childcare provider wants to ensure that the children they care for are safe, happy and healthy. With high profile cases such as Baby P making the headlines in recent years, safeguarding has become even more rigorous than ever...⠀

Waterbeads and shaving cream cake - This afternoon I set up different coloured shaving cream and a tray of waterbeads up for Mr 3.8 to make a pretend cake with. I watched him as he layered the 'cake' first with shaving cream and then with waterbeads. He was very methodical about the way he approached this, making sure all the waterbeads were covered with the shaving cream before applying the next layer. It was interesting watching him use the skills he learnt watching and making cakes with me. Mr 3.8 was throughly engaged spending close to an hour, changing the cake from one bowl and tray to another, remaking it and serving me pieces. This was the perfect afternoon quiet time sensory activity. -

This is such a fantastic way to use little loose parts for fine motor practice and counting. Balancing on duplo!! #Repost @play.learn.laugh with @make_repost

DUPLO BALANCE AND COUNT

We paired our @puggleandkit loose parts with our duplo trains to practise Mr 2.5's counting and fine motor skills. Not only was it fun to try and balance the different parts on the carriage but driving them around was fun too!

He chose from his loose parts container to find the best ones. It was great to see him discover that round objects balanced better than flat objects. It was also nice to see him classifying his two final choices by carriage..

Ce matin bébé chat 🐱 était en train de jouer avec un sachet de dragées de son baptême qui faisait du bruit lorsqu’il le secouer 😊
.
Ça m’a donc donné l’impulsion de commencer le petit loto sensoriel que je voulais faire depuis un moment déjà 💪 !
.
J’ai récupéré des sachets non utilisés et je les ai rempli, en double, avec : des lentilles, des petites pâtes et du riz pour commencer😊 (j’ai fait avec ce que j’avais sous la main \o/ )
.
Pour le moment il ne sera pas capable de les associer mais il apprécie quand même de sentir les différentes textures sous ses doigts, de voir lesquels font du bruit, de les malaxer, de les secouer etc. Bref une super activité sensorielle réalisée en 5 minutes 😁 !
.
A terme cela va développer le sens du toucher, les notions de textures, de poids aussi, la capacité à associer des choses semblables et donc à catégoriser, les capacités de préhension et la coordination main-œil 👍
.
J’ajouterai dès que j’aurai un peu de temps des sachets mous avec du coton, d’autres avec des noisettes etc. .
Petit défaut : les sachets sont un peu transparents, ça se voit sur les lentilles par exemple. Mais finalement ce sera juste un élément de plus à prendre en compte pour les associer quand bebe chat aura l’âge 😇.
.
N’hésitez pas à me donner des idées de ce que je pourrais mettre comme matière dans d’autres sachets 😊🙏 !!
.
Passez une belle journée de dimanche (ensoleillée ici 😍) et soyez bénis 😘

Eye contact is a very important part of learning to communicate  socially.

It helps your child see your facial expressions, gestures and lip patterns which all support speech and language development and it opens up opportunities to interact because of the connection it creates.

Limited or fleeting eye contact from your child can cause communication to break down because it gives you the idea that they are disinterested, which leads to less interaction, which leads to less opportunities to practice language, which ultimately leads to less language.

Putting things on your eyes or head helps to attract your child's attention during play and everyday life. Things that work well are:
👀 hats and wigs
👀 glasses
👀 kiddie binoculars
👀 stickers on your face
👀 looking through any sort of tube, like a toilet roll
👀 pulling silly faces with interesting sound effects 
Most importantly - bond by having FUN TOGETHER! 😎😀👒🤓😆

몬테소리 교육에 대해서 책도 읽고 
엄마표 몬테소리하는 인친님들 피드보며
아이의 일상 활동에 자유를 많이 주려고 하는데
그 중 하나가 “식사준비 참여하기” .
.
.
엄마에겐 귀찮고 지겨운 식사준비도
아이한테는 너무 즐거운 놀이시간😆
재료를 손으로 만져보고 
엄마가 사용하는 주방도구의 이름도 알아보며
새로운 세상을 탐험한다. .
.
.
불 앞에서 하는 요리는
아이보다 내가 훨씬 더 긴장하는데
키가 작은편인 아이라 발받침에 올려줘도
후라이팬에 손 델까봐 너무 무섭다😱
하지만 한번 두번 해보더니
재미와 욕심이 생긴 아이는
매끼 식사 준비때 마다 “내가 내가” 를 외치며
주방으로 달려온다. .
.
.
엄마가 해줄땐 안먹고 뱉어내던 브로콜리 요리도
스스로 만들면 맛있게 먹는다. 
식습관 교정에도 조금은 도움이 되는걸까🙄

Thank goodness for the #everydayplayhacks hashtag!! I found this bad boy weeks ago and have been meaning to make it for L.
The original poster escapes me, so if you are that person please holler!
🙌

I love this variation of a puzzle. A very quickly put together version,  but still pretty great to put in the nappy bag and take to restaurants or events! 👍

Stuff you need: popsicle sticks, textas and some paper. 
I simply drew and coloured in some shapes on the popsicle sticks. I also put examples of those shapes on paper so L knows what he is supposed to be making. He's just shy of 2 and he finds this a little tricky but with my help, he's getting there.
😊

It's just another great way to engage your child in #learningthroughplay . He is developing his fine motor and spatial skills, learning shapes and colours. Plus the talk that happens during this play is pretty darn special and meaningful too!! Hello language development!! 🙋‍♀️ Also, I'd consider using bigger popsicle sticks to make grasping and rearranging easier. 👐

Have you made anything like this before?? Any other tips or ideas we could integrate with this??

💜#emotionalintelligence  What is it? 💥It is the ability to “recognize, understand and manage our own emotions" and "recognize, understand and influence the emotions of others" ❓Want to mentor, teach and make a difference in kid's lives? DM us!
💜In practical terms, this means being aware that emotions can drive our behavior and impact people (positively and negatively), and learning how to manage those emotions — both our own and others — especially when we are under pressure.”
💜What are the qualities of emotional intelligence?
⭐Empathy
⭐Self awareness
⭐Curiosity
⭐Analytical Mind
⭐Belief or Faith
⭐Ability to discern between "needs" and "wants'
⭐Optimistic
⭐Adaptable 💜As teachers of kids need to have a high emotional intelligence - we are their mentors and need to lead by example. 💜We also need to be able to recognize the kids emotions, understand these emotions and then know what is appropriate to say [according to their developmental level] to influence them positively.  #kidsgymnastics #gymwizards

DM us! 💜In practical terms, this means being aware that emotions can drive our behavior and impact people (positively and negatively), and learning how to manage those emotions — both our own and others — especially when we are under pressure.” 💜What are the qualities of emotional intelligence? ⭐Empathy ⭐Self awareness ⭐Curiosity ⭐Analytical Mind ⭐Belief or Faith ⭐Ability to discern between "needs" and "wants' ⭐Optimistic ⭐Adaptable 💜As teachers of kids need to have a high emotional intelligence - we are their mentors and need to lead by example. 💜We also need to be able to recognize the kids emotions, understand these emotions and then know what is appropriate to say [according to their developmental level] to influence them positively. #kidsgymnastics  #gymwizards  #tumbling  #kinderkinetics  #earlyyearseducation  #earlylearningprogram  # earlychildhood #earlychildhoodeducation  #kidsexercise  #fitkids  #earlychildhoodeducation  #backflip  #motorskills  #finemotorskills  #grossmotorskills  #teachersofinstagram  #childdevelopment  #playislearning  #imaginativeplay  #occupationaltherapy  #physiotherapy  #physicaltherapist  #childpsychology  #playtherapy  #psychology .students #psychologyandmore  #educationalpsychology  #peteacher  #childrenarethefuture  #psychologymajor

A little different spin on your “Thankful Turkey” 🦃 
We hid the feathers around the house and played “hide and seek” when the girls found the feathers, they said something they were thankful for. We whipped up a new recipe of Nutmeg and Cloves Play Dough and added our feathers and some wooden clothes pins to make our play dough turkeys! *view stories for videos* The girls are still making their creations 🤗 complete details and recipe on the blog tomorrow!! What are you Thankful for? The girls’ answers were so sweet. I’ll drop a few things I’m thankful for below 👇🏼

@Regran_ed from @where_learning_meets_play -  M E S S Y fun! 🌈 Play dough and loose parts- so easy to set up for hours of fun! I have now updated the website to include individual tubes/bags of loose parts. My favourite would have to be the gemstone pieces.😍 I’ve also added wooden stamps, doll mermaid tails, and hand made tutus (because I love them and can’t help myself!) Follow the link to have a look.😘✨

Sometimes we like to be onlookers because we’re not that into it on that day at that time.  Sometimes we can learn about safety and leaning trees because we see something that starts our conversation.  Sometimes we’re so overcome with the beauty of ❄️ woods we just have to sing about it.  #tinkergarten kids #gratefulfornature #optoutside #outsideeveryday #wildandfreechildren #letthembelittle #playmatters #playislearning

🎁 GIFT TIPS 🛒
Let me first start out by saying I was a terrible gift buyer three years ago😅🤷🏻‍♀️. I totally fell for every flashy advertisement and walked straight up to the loudest self winding toy🤦🏻‍♀️. Nicky never ever wanted to play independently with her toys😐. She would be distracted for a few minutes and then cry for my attention😩. If this is you, keep reading➡️. I honestly believe that Emma 👶🏻 is more independent even at her 14 months of age due to the quality of toys and activities I provide her with 🤗. •
👉🏼I’m finishing up some gift guides for the holidays but first I wanted to give you some tips on choosing toys. I’ll be sharing what we are getting our girls for Hanukkah as well when I release the guides🤗. •
❣️Quality over quantity. Buy items that are made well and are long lasting. It’s better to spend a little more on one item over buying three variations of a cheap one. ❣️Choose toys that have multiple purposes especially if you have limited space. You will buy less items and find your children playing more independently. ❣️Try to stay away from character themed toys like a talking Mickey Mouse. These toys are one and done toys. They are excited over them initially but loose interest almost immediately. ❣️Spend your money wisely. Ask yourself, will they use this toy next year as well? ❣️Get creative. If you are on a budget or want to give toys that aren’t very expensive, make play dough kits. These are inexpensive to make and by far my daughters favorite gifts. I’ll share some ideas on this soon. •
Do you have any tips? I’d love to share them 🤗❤️ #mothercould .

* DIY POSTING ACTIVITY * 
This is a great one the younger babies (around 10-18 months). It’s great for developing those fine motor skills. Younger toddlers love putting things in things and opening and closing everything. I could hear Miss 13 months breathing heavier while she was concentrating 🤣
.
You can pretty much use anything you can find around the house for this! We used an empty Huggies wipes box and the @kmartaus animal matching game. .
👉 Swipe to see Miss 1 in action

Nature paintbrushes!! 🌱🌾🍃 some days, our activities are planned and we are pretty intentional with our play and learning. Other days are more languid and idle, exploring and creating without any goal in mind. This activity was one of those gloriously spontaneous strokes of genius that made for an afternoon of fun and beauty!•
•
As we often do on our slower days, the kids and I went on a stroll around the neighborhood with a basket in tow to collect interesting nature things. As we were walking, we found these great big puffs sticking out of a plant by the road. The kids were fascinated with them, and plucked a few for our basket. When we got home, they asked to color and paint and the idea struck me to use the plants as paintbrushes! The process was so much fun - dipping, rolling, slapping and swirling the paint onto the paper to make their masterpieces. The conversation was fueled by color mixing, comparing the plant to a regular paintbrush, the different types of strokes and textures we could create. And the final products were beautiful. We had so much fun!

• ROTATION DAY • 
Or rather, rotation weekend 🙈
.
It has literally taken all weekend to finally get the playroom rotated, mostly because we bit off more than we could chew and decided to also move the girls both into the same bedroom this weekend 😅🤦🏻‍♀️
.
We were lucky enough to be sent this beautiful new trolley shelf and bookshelf by @bunnytickles last week and I’m so glad to have them in the playroom 😍 they are completely stunning!! And with all our Grimms and Grapat goodies from @oskarswoodenark on the shelf it’s just so inviting! 😍
.
I’ve brought the dollhouse back in here after being in Miss 4’s room for a while (it’s @letoyvantoys) .
And I’ve rotated all the activities on these shelves and our other shelves ☺️ I will hopefully get to a playroom tour later today in stories to show you everything that’s out!
.
I tried to get a shot of the whole playroom today but it’s just too difficult to get in one photo! So stay tuned to stories to see ☺️

Simple Pre-writing activiy.
Mr. Almost 4 loves doing this activity. He'd probably do it everyday if I let him. Not only do the stickers help with motor skills but it's great for hand eye cordination, pre writing skills and one of the main reasons I like doing this with Mr. Almost 4 is it helps him with starting left to right on the paper. 
Items Used:
- Marker - paper - Dot stickers

Jälle üks neist päevadest, kus Ellu küsis minult virna puslesid ja pani need kõik ühe jutiga kokku. Kui see tehtud, teatas ta, et on väsinud ning läksime rahulikult lõunaunne. Jah, tol päeval vist nii lihtsalt see asi käiski.. 😱
