kids in doodles: playing with stars

Β early learning, early childhood education, kids in doodles, playtime

one of my favorite things to do now is to play with stars, mum loves making them + placing them in bottles to be displayed in our home + while she busied herself with one of her favorite pastimes, i preoccupy myself with her finish products. here you’ll see me placing the little stars in this plastic bottle container. now i’ve moved on to pouring them from one bottle to another, one different container to the next. sure is a lot of fun! plus mum said it also keeps my little hands busy + helps me to work on my motor skills, so i guess it’s all good! πŸ™‚

early learning, early childhood education, kids in doodles, playtime

apart from counting them up + aiming to shoot them onto the plastic bottle, i also enjoy scattering them on the floor + retrieving them one by one with my mum. they might end up all over the floor + underneath the sofa, but we enjoy picking them up + keeping them in their container afterwards πŸ˜‰

anyway, aside from it being such a fun song to sing, it also teaches of the different sounds that each farm animal does + thanks to this song i learned early on that a cow makes the moo sound, while the dog makes the aw-aw sound! πŸ™‚ mum thrifted this board book, by the way, from cutesy patootie
