I stumbled across a blog called 1plus1plus1equals1 where I found "Tot Books." She had a printable pack of activities that related to the book and were just right for him to enjoy and also to give him a little challenge!
5 Little Monkeys Tot Pack (if you're interested in checking it out)
Tait was super excited to go get things off the printer and was excited about each activity. By the way, I loved that each activity was either a book or had a little pouch to store the pieces in. Here are some pictures of us having fun; I love how he can't stay still long enough for a photo (and please ignore mess that occurs over the weekend when I spend time with family instead of cleaning):
|Sorting Monkeys by size|
|He did great when I asked which is the littlest and then which one is bigger.|
|Which one is the biggest?|
|Which one is smallest?|
|Reading and counting!|
After having fun we made an obstacle course to practice some of his gross motor skills. He had fun jumping off the couch, crawling through the 'cave,' and climbing his mountain of stuffed animals :). I had fun watching him enjoy these activities and can't wait to do more!
