Our shelves needed some rotations!
We’ve swapped out the scales and weights for a number puzzle and a stacking game!
A really enjoyed the puzzle - an improvement from last time I had it out.
I asked A to pick up a number and I told him the name of that numeral. Once he knew what the numeral was, he could then count the animals on the jigsaw before putting the number in place. I think this is also helping with estimating how many items are in a group which has a name but I can’t remember it.
The other shelf we swapped over is the miniature tray. We put out the Safari Toob Nativity set.
I printed out a picture from this link which was from this YouTube video. We watched the video and A had to find the figurine as it was displayed.
We can match up the figurines with the image for a later activity.

Well, it’s Christmas morning and I’m awake but A is still asleep. No doubt as soon as I get into doing this he will wake up 😂
To make a stained ‘glass’ picture you cut out a shape from some paper and lay into onto the sticky side of some contact or clear book covering.
Then you let the kid go to town sticking random craft stuff down onto it. We had cellophane, patty papers and chocolate foils.
Make sure you have a border of contact around your paper, so that you can use it to stick the stained glass up into a window.

Christmas trees! When I search Pinterest for Christmas craft ideas there are a lot of snow related images, but unfortunately there is no snow here. In fact there is no hope of snow forming when even the bitumen melts!
This one seemed like a no brainer after I saw this activity from You Clever Monkey, but I was too lazy to download and print, plus I’m running out of toner. So I folded a green piece of paper in half and chopped into it. A and I glued it into his book and then A drew on it while I got the stuff we needed for the rest of the activity 😆 We covered it with Stampin Up demensionals that you can get from here. Kristy Coromandel is a friend and an awesome craft presenter.
Then came the buttons. We love buttons around here! So tactile and they make such pretty sounds.
So on they went.
And when he was done, he added glitter glue. And who can blame him?
And finally the finished product!
