Like most kids, the Butterballs like all things bright and colorful.
Tamlyn can identify colors.
Ethan... well, we are working on it.
Which brings me to today's activity:
The Butterballs were given a bowl full of coloured deco-pebbles (beads, buttons, bottle-caps etc would work just fine!)
They had to sort them by color, placing them into the correct compartment of my lazy-susan.
They happily sorted the pebbles with Tamlyn shouting out the color and Ethan repeating her -an older sister is such a help...except when she's bossing you around ;)
This color sorting soon lead to a counting game.
They enjoyed counting how many pebbles there were in each compartment,
giving me a good forty-five minutes of peace until...
Ethan decided to spin the lazy-susan,showering the floor with pebbles!
'Look Mama, a rainbow carpet'
He promptly dives down and begins rolling about, much to the delight of Tamlyn, who quickly joins in on the action.
So much for color sorting...
