Tot Trays: Outside

It’s July in Texas, which means we aren’t leaving the air-conditioned house for any location other than the pool…and even then we wait until after 6:00 p.m. when the entire pool is shaded. We’re spending a lot of time inside, so I’m pulling out all the tricks to keep everyone happy and entertained.

Tot School: Outside | Tot Trays from Lone Star Signers

Tot Trays:

1. B is for Bugs playdough mat (perfect for rolling out snakes)
2. Flower count & clip cards (Kate is showing an interest in writing, so we’ll use a dry-erase marker with this activity.)
3. Very Hungry Caterpillar color matching (Sometimes we use pom poms and tongs to make this a fine motor activity.)
4. Ladybug clipping activity with mini-clothespins
5. Activity page from a Target Dollar Spot workbook
6. “L is for leaf” lacing card

Printables from 1+1+1=1 (leaf and bug) and 3 Dinosaurs. (I haven’t found the file with the ladybugs on my computer yet. I’ll update this post when I do.)

What are your kiddos playing with this week?
