Now to the pictures!
His shelves really needed organizing! I found these cute little bins on clearance at Wal-Mart. I LOVE the striped ones, but after going to 4 different Wal-Marts, I think I bought the last 3 in the area!
I found these great little trays at Target and they are perfect! The activities are 1)Shapes with control card and colored popsicle sticks- it's one of his favorite activties! 2) Pink language series- he has to match the word with the picture. 3) Blue triangles- make different pictures with the triangles- control card shows the different pictures he can make.
New organization bin- I bought this from Lowe's. It stores the Pink Language Series, and other activities.
Here's one row- 1st box is Magnetic/Non-magnetic- 2nd box is Missouri Birds and the 3rd box is Van Gogh
Learning color gradient- I picked up paint chip cards- 2 sets for each color. I cut one apart and left the other as the control card. Eventually, he will be able to put them in order without the control card.
We hung bird feeders right outside his activity room so he can see the Missouri birds he's learning about. We do get a lot of birds, but they apparently didn't want their picture taken, lol!
Eli filling the log bird feeder- Milo made this feeder a couple of years ago. The mix is peanut butter with a high energy bird seed mix- it has dried fruits and nuts in it.
Eli watching for birds to come to the newly filled feeders
Hammering nails and sorting nuts/washers, plus learning how to turn for putting them on/taking them off
This is another favorite activity. Flower foam, golf tees, marbles and ping pong balls. Eli has to place the golf tee in the foam straight so the marble or ping pong ball will balance on it. For extra learning, I put numbers on the balls.
His dry erase board- He has a spray bottle to clean off his board. He LOVES his spray bottle. It's empty right now which is why his board isn't clean. He's a little obsessed with cleaning.
Geometry shapes- Melissa and Doug- Eli LOVES this activity!!
