interest 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 already count to 13 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!
this is what 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??
