The interest in our home lately has been centered on sea creatures. This idea popped into my head and I immediately knew I had to make it. It is a little advanced for my guy to do unassisted right now, but in 6 months or so, he will probably be able to go at it alone. But for now, I can work with him on it. He can count a bit by himself, but we can continue developing his one-to-one correspondence (assigning one number to each item).
I didn't take any step-by-step shots because it's fairly straight forward. AND I was totally in the zone and didn't even think of it!
Materials I used:
file folder (I painted it with blue glitter watercolor)
my trusty laminator :)
|octopus body made out of colored paper and glued onto file folder|
|sequins glued onto the tentacle strips then laminated|
|hook-n-loop to attach tentacles to appropriate numbers|
((I usually put the fuzzy side on the removable pieces so they don't stick to the couch))
|envelope laminated onto the outside to store pieces|
fun times, right??
