Here is a quick game that works on sequencing and visual processing. It is suggested for 6 and up, but my almost 5 year old son is loving it! It is perfect for short attention spans. As you can see, it is easy to learn and bonding time starts as soon as you open the box! amzn.to/2Qln5wZ For Instagram, I put the affiliate link in my profile. Check out the low price! ...

Video is in the comments! We love our construction and farm sensory bins! They love playing in the dry black beans. So much learning is happening through every scoop and pour. They are practicing skills like this so one day they can do important skills like pouring their own milk. ⚠️ If you have a little one that may put stuff in their mouth or nose, do Cheerios instead of black beans. Yes, they throw the beans from time-to-time. When they do that, they have to clean it up. I don’t mind because the fine motor skills it takes to pick up the beans is so good for them! My twins learned really fast not to do it again because they didn’t want to clean it up. ☺️ I put down an old sheet and let them play away! I will include an Amazon affiliate link to a really fun farm set we have so you can get started on the fun! amzn.to/2JW8zdT... See MoreSee Less
My boys LOVE playing car wash. I have done many versions of this over the past 3 years. Today was my favorite! First, he drove his car through paint piles. Then he painted his car with the washable paint. Then it was time for the super fun bath soap (looks like shaving cream). We had this from a pretend shaving set, but I will link another play foam soap. The spray bottle and foam soap help build the strength in their little hands. It is great for fine motor skills to get them ready for writing. We used bottle cleaning brushes as car wash spinners. To simplify it, you can leave out the paint and strictly just do a car wash. That is what we typically do. The paint was an extra fun way to get the full experience. I keep thinking how fun it would be to do it with mud! My oldest is almost 5 and my twins are going to be two. My oldest spent over an hour doing this outside! Mom tips: My three fought over our spray bottle! So be sure to have enough spray bottles! We took this activity outside so our kitchen floor wasn’t a disaster. Do this right after they wake up so it’s not a double change of clothes. Or keep the “mess contained” by playing car wash in the empty bath tub. You can try out the colored bath soaps too!
When my son was 3-ish I taught him my phone number in under 5 minutes. True story, my husband finally learned my phone number with this song 🤣 Personally, I don’t worry about area codes at this age. Here is an example phone number I picked. Volume up to hear this catchy song! ... See MoreSee Less
