I love activities that both of the kids can participate in and also love watching the difference in how they both play.
The Frog is very much into putting things in and out of containers ( the teacher-ery description of this is 'enclosing'). This included the noodles. He loved squishing them as he filled bowls, then put them back into the big container. Surprisingly he didn't try to eat them!
The Fairy was less keen to touch them but still wanted to move them - she preferred a spoon.
She later requested to do some cooking with them in her play kitchen (as a side note I made her kitchen before I started blogging - one day when I'm organised I'm planning to write a post on how I did it!).
This activity was great for using adjective words. Adjectives are so much easier to learn if children can feel and experience the word!
