After some quick thinking and running around the house to gather some supplies, I came up with three activities that helped us all pass time.
-Clear contact paper (purchase at a craft store, Target or Walmart)
-Colored construction paper
-Scrapbook 1 inch hole punch
Using ribbon, I divided the large piece of contact paper into for sections, so it looked like a window. I then cut each piece of colored construction paper into different shapes. When B woke up, I let him first explore the sticky paper with his fingers and then showed him what to do with the colored paper by placing a few pieces in each divided section for him. After that, he was off a running. His masterpiece is now hanging proudly in the playroom!
Variations- If you do not have the colored stacking blocks that you see pictured, don't worry, just make them yourself. Use an empty tissue box or shoebox and some colored cellophane. :)
Share with us some of the WONDERful activities you did with your LOs to help pass time during this nasty storm...
