Today I spent less than $3 on golf tees to use with my extra pegboard & Rubber bands. This has been well spent money!
I took an spare cardboard box, used painters tape to secure pegboard to the box. Then I handed A & S some golf tees and rubber bands. They are having a blast!
A & S had fun trying different ways to push or pound the tees into the box.
A is making different shaped with the golf tees. Then they had a great time adding rubber bands.
Fun was had by all, and it continues even days later!

I have finally completed A’s I Spy Bag. She was a big motivator in getting it done as she saw it and wanted to play with it. So I took the few minutes to get it finished.
She enjoys shaking the bag around and seeing what she can find in it.
SKILLS: Observation, Imagination (makes up stories based on different objects). Color identification. Listening skills (I ask her to fine 1 or all of the things of one shape/color, etc).
