I am always on the lookout for fun activities for my boys. A lot of the time they are things I make up myself from ideas I have pick up from many mommy based learning/playing sites and blogs. I will probably post a lot of activities from these sites in the future, for now my find at Michael's craft store.
I have been meaning to make "feltboards" for a while now. You know, glue felt to a piece of cardboard, cut out fun shapes and letters and numbers out of other felt and whola, instant fun and satisfaction for the littles both at home and in the car. Well it is still on my to do list. But I did find the above felt boards at Michael's craft store. I went in for Shells for the beach themed photographs I am doing for the cousins but being my thrifty self I always glance at the clearance aisle. There they were, amazing story board felt shapes just screaming my name. I picked up 2, a beach/pirate themed one and a space/astronaut themed one. Both have more pieces then I really like, or that my boys are really ready for but at just $1.25 each, I just could not pass it up. Zander and Drezden both enjoyed them greatly. Although Drezden was more fascinated by putting the felt pieces into a bowl then onto the board. Zander got into the space one and started asking all sorts of questions about stars and planets and astronauts, I see a weekly theme of space coming soon.
And just because he is way too cute to leave out, this is what Syler was doing while the boys played with their felt boards
