This is supposed to be for ages 3 and up but Zac loves it.
459. Have popcorn for the first time.
460. It's so fabulous that he knows the difference between "or" and "and." I love watching increasing language sophistication grow. He also, seemingly out of nowhere, knows all of his colors!
461. Shopping for birthday presents. It's so sad that they don't make the Wild Animal Baby magazine anymore. My girls loved it!! Setled on Haba's
Palette of Pegs and
Color Pie and the Plan Toys Bee Hive.
462. Make fresh-squeezed orange juice homemade vitamin C gummies. Store in the fridge.
Gummy bear molds
are adorable and easy. Let your child practice with the eyedropper and plain water for some excellent fine motor work.
463. Finding toddler friendly recipes... mostly he is up for adding ingredients to a bowl, stirring, or washing produce. One example: Overnight
Refrigerator Steel Cut Oats with Chia and Strawberries.
464. Zac has only ever had white chalk. He was so excited when I presented him with a wooden bowl with different colors of chalk in it!
465. Whisper together.
466. Play hide and seek behind the peonies. Throw magnolia leaves at one another.
467. Carefully refill the peanuts in the peanut bird feeder.
468. Lift up and put back down the shapes in the Dog Magic Puzzle. This is made for dogs
but Zac just adores it! Next up... we need to find a recipe for homemade dog treats.
469. Travel and see new things. For us, this was a visit to the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque IA.
at home and see new things. For us, this was Crispus Attucks Park, a park right here in town, which turned out to have a free
(and toddler-friendly) water playground.
471. Make peanut butter cookies. Use a fork to press a criss-cross design in the top of the little balls of dough.
