I'm going with "better late than never" on this one. I took these photos in lent, but they never made it to this space. I had so many plans for our lent together this year, but they met with resistance, so it was a fine, though unremarkable lent. The one project that was finished (though not used as much as I thought it would be) was to make some seasonal trays for Rowan to use while Jonah did his skill work during lent. I found these little trays at hobby lobby and am thinking some chalk paint will make them something special one of these days, but for now, they are unfinished wood trays lined with seasonal scrapbook paper. If you changed the colors, these trays could work for the season of Easter too.
I made these little blindfold masks a couple months ago and have been doing a few different sensory exercises with the boys. They are fun exercises and are stemming from some research in helping the early cognitive child. They help with motor and sensory skills that sometime are skipped when a child focuses on reading and other cognitive development earlier than most. And mostly, I love that sensory games are always eagerly met because they are fun and different.
And, now I'm off to pack these little trays before I go to bed; slow and steady we prepare for the move!
