I believed up the toy field treasure hunt as a enjoyable sport for my daughter to play making use of issues we have already got at house. It’s made merely and shortly with colouring pens, cardboard, scrap paper and a glue stick (and naturally your youngster’s toy field). Fortunately now we have discovered additional advantages of the toy field treasure hunt embody quantity and color apply too!
It began out with my daughter colouring in a chunk of scrap paper. Fairly often I’ll give her only one color for her to attract what she likes. I maintain her doodles and later reduce shapes or letters from them for playing cards and collages made out of her work.
This time, from her drawing, I reduce out star shapes. As soon as finished, Lily helped me by gluing them onto scraps of cardboard. I reduce round them carefully, and was left with sturdy cardboard stars for ‘treasure’. We made 10, as we’re at present practising counting to 10 in French.
I buried them amongst toys in her toy field and challenged her to hunt for all of them, counting them as she went. She cherished it!
Later that week we made extra stars, from totally different colouring drawings. That point I received her to hunt for various colored stars and totally different numbers. I’d say “can you discover two crimson stars and discover two blue”. My daughter is 2 and a half and so this kind of sport is enjoys and is worked up to play.
I’ve now begun hiding stars in her toy field at night time, in order to depart it out for her to play within the mornings once we first come downstairs.
I’d like to know in the event you do this to your infant too! For those who don’t maintain your youngsters’s toys in a field you may use an enormous bag or perhaps a suitcase? Or possibly not toys in any respect, you may cover stars round their room or in a straightforward to succeed in cabinet of issues?
P.S. I’ve shared one other craft and sport for colors and counting apply right here.
