Default An Activity I Recommend!

This is just a random recomendation, but I am SOOOOOOOOOO pleased with these:

http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/seo...evelopment.jsp

Hope my img works, if not look at Lakeshore Learning Store online and look up "Fill it Up Jar" for fine motor. They are a huge HIT since I bought them recently! Perfect for ages 12months-2.5years (They say 3+ for small parts but you just have to watch them.)

I disagree about kids under 3. They are right in the sensitive period for my 13 month old, and he doesnt' mouth things anymore really. But anyway, only with supervision absolutely.

Thanks for help!

They do look fun, but I can get cited for having them in the playroom with kids under 3.

We have to be so careful with a mixed group to keep from getting any negative remarks on our records.

I would love to have those... Wish they'd make them larger for mixed aged groups. I'd buy them in a heartbeat.

ditto here...

and sorry, I was saying that the ones that I have are not good for kids under age 3. I could not use these in my toddler room, but I could in my preschool room. But the ages for the preschool room are 3 and up....

Oh I didn't think of citations, you're right. I'm legally unlicensed so I don't have to worry about that, I can use my own best judgement. Sorry!

I love shape sorters. I still use the Tupperware one my mom bought for my kids. Safe for littles too as the pieces are pretty big.

I use Pb jars, and cut holes in the lid. For objects we use PVC pipe chunks

I have one made with a coffee can and metal juice lids. It's called the "clink" can. The juice lids have stickers on them. KIDS LOVE THESE!
