One of our local toy stores is going out of business, and they have had all of their inventory at 50% off for the last few months.
(It’s almost all gone now, or I would tell you about it.)
(Scratch that. If that were true, I would have told you about it a few months ago. I’m a bad sharer of good information.)
ANYWAY, I stocked up on some creative learning toys for Ali, and one of the things that I got was this:
It’s a kit of 6 cardboard pictures and 3,500 small square stickers with a legend to show where to put them.
Granted, I figured that she was WAY too young to actually get this concept. I usually don’t pay attention to age suggestions, but this said ages 6-99, so I put it in the closet to save for later.
However, the day after our last art project, Ali started begging me to do more art, so I decided to pull it out to see how long her attention span would last.
I was shocked.
I explained to her that the numbers on the butterfly told her what color of stickers to put on it,
And showed her how to match the colors and numbers on her legend,
And she TOTALLY got it.
We have worked on our mosaic several different days, and she has focused on it for long periods of time, loving every minute of it.
She mumbles under her breath constantly: “I need to wook on my wegend.”
I can’t imagine how good this must be for her reasoning skills and coordination…and it’s fun! I think it is totally age appropriate for toddlers – and a great way to introduce them to a lot of different skills.
I vowed to stay away from her mosaic and let her do every bit of it by herself, but then she started asking me to take turns with her.
And … it’s a bit addicting.
Chris told me to put it down the other night. (After I had been working on it for several minutes after Ali had moved on.)
At any rate, here’s our progress so far:
And we have five more pictures in our set for later!
