I mentioned recently that Ty wanted to play with his entire box of Memory cards recently. While that isn't an issue (face up), it's a bit too much to do on his own. Here I put ten cards with their matches in a box for him to do on his own. I need to separate the matches and show him how to lay one set down and then match the others to them. Right now I am laying the first set out for him, probably because I'm a bit of a control freak. I have to see what he does on his own!
Sorting buttons big to small, big buttons in the big bowl and small in the small bowl. I am likely going to have to add medium soon as it seems too easy. He sometimes starts then just starts dumping them all from bowl to bowl.
This is a big proud Mama (and Tyler!) moment! Ty spilled beans and was able to sweep them 100% independently and dump them in the garbage!
Oops! Some messes are too big to start fixing with a hand broom. Ty was putting the rice back in one handful at a time so I then showed him how to use him hands together to pick-up more rice at once for efficiency. This is still my favorite way to buy some time when I'm cooking dinner and I keep a bin on top of the fridge. His dumping between two containers gets out of hand at time!
Ty has spent a lot of time looking out windows lately. There has been a lot of bird and squirrel activity and he's very interested. Not so interested when it's dark out. Then he gets scared and wants us to close the blinds.
Some large muscle highlights this week were working on pedaling a trike, roller skating, working on his overhand throwing aim and wheelbarrow walking
