"Pinteresting"

I know we all do...we "pin it" with hopes of someday following through. Lately the idea of some sort of structured educational time throughout Wyatt's  (and even Sloane's) day has been really on my mind. So what's a mom to do? I created a Pinterest board with all the age appropriate educational fun I could find. It's the teacher in me...the crazy ODC teacher that it. If I was still a teacher with the Pinterest resources I think I would have weekly anxiety attacks and I don't say that lightheartedly at all!
I started gathering some workbooks earlier this month but also wanted to create some hands on activities as well. I came across this fun idea from Tot Treasures and knew I had to create it ASAP!
 
After a quick to Hobby Lobby I had what I needed.
 
1 bag of popsicles sticks
2 packs (15 sets each) Hook & Loop Velcro dots
There were lots of options but I choose the large colored ones. I did this with intentions of creating not only shapes but patterns too!


This literally took 5 minutes to make.
I only had 2 dots (1 set) left so it almost worked perfect! 
 Before I even had them stored away Wyatt saw the bright colors sitting on the table. He wanted in on some fun immediately. He played for over 20 mins. with free-play time and had no instructions at all!
I think this will be something I stick in the diaper bag to take to resturants or any other places we may have to wait.
The best part...whole project was under $10! 
Pin It
