I love spontaneous play! I took the fall collection of little plastic decorations out to do another activity and the kids decided to dive right in and make their own.
At first they collected each something of the same shape or color.
Next there was lining up of items according to the size, color or type.
At this point I gave them an egg carton that was hanging around from the eggs I had just unpacked to see what would happen.
I had to fetch more egg cartons from the crafting shelf they were having such fun!
Each item was then “planted” into an egg slot. This is great fine motor practice!
All in all this impromptu activity kept the 2 kids busy for well over 20 minutes and that’s a success in my books!
