After making our cute Valentine Candy Heart Ornament earlier in the week, we had a bunch of candy hearts lying around.
It occurred to me that this might make a great toddler activity…aka keep her busy and not screaming!
I dumped all the candy hearts in the top of the egg carton.
Then I tried to show her how to put the same colors in the same compartments…naming the colors as we went along.
She totally didn’t get it.
We’ve been working on ‘same’ because she tends to bring me two different shoes when she wants to go some where.
So we’ll have to keep working on this one.
But it was a great fine motor activity and as you can see the boys (yes, he’s dressed as a ninja) were ALL OVER this…begging to eat some.
I got a phone call and Maddi decided to put all the hearts back in the bag. When I got them out a bit later to see if she’d do the activity again…a few were wet! She must have wanted to taste one, but not liked it! LOL
