I am loving this watermelon counting puzzle from @_si@_simply_bea_ so clever and Such a fun invitation to learn! ❤ Heidi #Repost @_simply_bea_ • • • • • • 🍉DIY Watermelon Counting Puzzle🍉 . To make: I cut out 2 large circles from cardboard and stuck them together. I painted it with water colour and paint sticks for texture then divided equally into 10 sections. Cut and draw the seeds on the red part and numbers 1-10 on the skin part. 🍉 . A simple puzzle to learn one on one correspondence especially for little miss. Unfortunately, she didn’t get the chance to play with this puzzle because her big bro and cousin took over the play and they even pretended to eat the slices 🤣 So I’ll try again tomorrow 😍 . . . . . @get.creative.with #getcreativewith @everydayplayhacks #everydayplayhacks @recycleandplay #recycleandplay #recycledplay #oursensoryfruit #simpleplaysaturday #the12weeksofsummer @the12weeksof #august_play #playbasedlearning #diyplay #cardboardcraft #cardboardcrafts #cardboardboxcreative #cardboardcreations #creativemom #craftymom #craftymama #welovesummerplay #learningthroughplay #wherelearningmeetsplay #playathome #learningathome

How incredible is this perpetual calendar from @the@theplayjournals? Keep saving that cardboard! Siân X (@teach.investigate.play) . repost via @instarepost20 from @theplayjournals CARDBOARD PERPETUAL CALENDAR When your 3.5yo keeps asking you - ❓ How long more till Papa's birthday? (Though that's more like, "How many more days till I get to eat the cake!" 😆) ❓ What day is it today? ❓ What does the weekend mean? ❓ Is it summer already?! (I wish!!!) 📅 Now I normally don't like to spend too much time on DIY stuff but I figured the learning opportunities that come along with would be worth it, especially when we have to refer to it EVERYDAY. 📆 So I hopped onto the #tactilelearningboard bandwagon (big inspos from @grays_at_play @learnandbloom @allthemumery @jc.n.co) and created this bilingual cardboard calendar, following a template from @chalkacademy's website. 📅 It just so happens that it's the last day of July today. That means it'd be perfect for Mr 3.5 to rearrange the numbers for the new month tomorrow. We decided to stick a dot sticker on today's date so it's easier to reference +1 (tomorrow) and -1 (yesterday). 📆 Of course, you know we can't do without pairing it with a book about the months and seasons of the Aussie year. // ALL THROUGH THE YEAR by Jane Godwin and Anna Walker, published by @penguinbooksaus. . . . #recycleandplay @recycleandplay @mothercould @hellowonderful_co #diyplaythings #everydayplayhacks @everydayplayhacks @teach.investigate.play @the_harmony_tree_house #playathomemummy #wherelearningmeetsplay #learnathome #cardboardcreations #handsonlearning #perpetualcalendar #diycalendar #allthroughtheyear #learningthroughplay #montessoriinspired #montessorikids #homeschoolpreschool #learnandplay

Posting activities are always a big hit with mine so I love this activity from @zar@zaras_play_tribe 😍 You can find out more about Zara by heading over to my page @teach.investigate.play to the interview she did for the Inspirational Educators series ❤️ Sian x . repost via @instarepost20 from @zaras_play_tribe DIY Animal Post //⁠ .⁠ As soon as we got these animals from @the_freckled_frog⁠ ⁠ the kids had favourites. Over the last week we have tried to get to know each animal.⁠ .⁠ Using everybody's favourite, the Giraffe, as the hook I made this animal posting puzzle. This was a way to help them familiarise themselves with the animals they were not interacting with as much.⁠ .⁠ It provided great opportunities for us to identify them, practise their names and talk about their features.⁠ .⁠ I have made this posting puzzle game before, with household items, and it was a hit then too!⁠ ⁠.⁠ This is always a great example of #manywaystoplay with cardboard over at @manywaystoplay . This week @today.our.children is hosting!⁠ ⁠.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #everydayplayhacks #wherelearningmeetsplay #littleplayideas #letthemplay #learningthroughplay #playmatters #childhoodunplugged #getcreative #playathomemummy #playbasedlearning #earlyyearsideas #funislearning #busytoddler #toddlerplay #invitationtoplay #earlylearning #earlyyearsplay #toddleractivities #toddleractivitiesathome #littleoneslearn #montessori #montessoriinspired #amummycancreate #playdiscovercreate #preschoolathome #funislearning⁠ #freckledfrog ⁠

What a cute matching and sorting activity! Thank you @lea@learnandbloom 💓 #Repost @learnandbloom • • • • • • DIY fruit sorting activity 🍎🍐🍊 . . . A simple DIY for Mr 17m based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This one is great for him because the sticks can fit into any TR, unlike his shape sorter which requires the correct shape to be put in. He puts each fruit stick in randomly but it gives us an opportunity to talk about the colours and names of each fruit. We can also do some counting practise later on too! 🍎🍐🍊 . I printed pictures off @twinklaustralia, laminated it for durability and stuck TR on a thick piece of cardboard. 🍎🍐🍊 . . . #childledplay #playbased #playeveryday #ear#earlyyearss #earlyyears #educationalplay #followthechild #childhoodunplugged #letthemplay #earlylearners #playathome #kidsactivities #homeschoolpreschool #learnathome #handsonactivities #creativeplay #playideas #toddleractivities #littleplayideas #invitationtoplay #everydayplayhacks #recycleandplay #bookishplay #childrensbooks #picturebooks #finemotor #finemotorskills #wonderandawekids

A very clever weather disc DIY for your little learner! Thank you @jc.@jc.n.co - we love your work!! #Repost @jc.n.co • • • • • • DIY weather discs expansion pack - 🌫We woke up to a very foggy Sunday morning last weekend. Mr4 asked me how the weather was, and I replied "foggy", then he pointed to his weather discs and asked "Which one?" . . From that I decided to add a few more weather discs to our current collection: ⛈Stormy - because my kids love dancing to the song "Thunder"....and lightning 🌫Hail - because our car got hit by "ice from the sky" earlier this year 🌈Rainbows - because we all love rainbows . . . #cardboardcreations #recycleandplay #recycledcraft #everydayplayhacks #learningathome #myplayfullearners #littleplayideas #letthemplay #howweplayandlearn #handsonlearning #diyplay #teachmakecreate #makeandcreate

I love this simple and fun activity from @pla@play.and.learn.activities - this is exactly what #eve#everydayplayhacks is all about! Siân (@teach.investigate.play) . repost via @instarepost20 from @play.and.learn.activities Playdough hair cut! This activity is all Caris' idea from @little_smiths_play She set this up for her son on Friday and when I saw it, I knew I'd have to do it! It was amazing! Lawrence absolutely loved it! He carefully cut every strand of 'hair' until there was nothing but a blob on babies head. Then asked to do it again. So I think it's safe to say I won't be attending Lawrence's salon any time soon 😂 even if clothes are optional 🤣! Thanks for the awesome activity Caris. . . . #everydayplayhacks #wherelearningmeetsplay #littleplayideas #letthemplay #learningthroughplay #letthemhavefun #playislearning #getcreative #childhood #childhoodunplugged #childhoodplay #earlyyearsplay #earlylearning #playdiscovercreate #playathomemummy #playmatters #playbasedlearning #playandlearn #playandlearnactivities #earlylearning101 #finemotorskills #montessori #montessoriinspired #montessoriathome #tod#toddlerplay #toddlerplay #toddlerplayideas #busykids #kidsplayideas
