Worms and Dirt 

So A was looking through the 150+ Activities book and got excited & asked if we could do an activity.  I decided to modify it a bit by using Oreos & Gummy worms to make it edible.   

So she & I took a walk to the grocery store  (which in itself was a blast & will be its own post soon so stay tuned) to get the things we needed. Then got straight to work when we got home. 

First step was for her to figure out how to crush the Oreos.  She tried her hands,  decided was not good.  Then her feet,  which was better.  Then grabbed a container and used it as a hammer.  All in all successful (& it was fun watching her try several things & not get discouraged that it did not work). 

Next we placed some worms & peach circles in & let her play as she saw fit for a bit.  Then we started hiding them, counting,  comparing, etc. Got to talk about subtracting when we ate some.  Then we even practiced tying knots with the worms! 

This was a great fun activity! 

SKILLS: Problem Solving,  Counting,  Sorting,  Subtracting, Matching, Tying.
