Week 14: Tissue box – in and out

3 May



Here is the last catch up post before I can post this week’s activity.

For the past few weeks Princess Peanut has been obsessed with ‘in’ and ‘out’, and more recently, ‘on’ and ‘off’. So I thought it was prime time to do this activity!

The inspiration comes from Making boys men.


So here is Princess Peanut – no explanation or modelling needed her. There were blocks…there was a box…of course the blocks have to go in the box!!


She had such great fun putting the blocks in with such confidence she could do it with her eyes closed, well her back turned at least!



This automatically turned into building a tower of her very own for the first time! ❤ how exciting and wonderful to watch her concentrate and see how the blocks fit together.IMG_7178You can see the tower isn’t straight, but she was experimenting and learning all at the same time! She only needed a little bit of help from Teacher Mumma to help hold the tower still every so often.

Summary/ Verdict: A nice easy to prepare activity (once I remembered to save the tissue box) and CHEAP! Princess Peanut automatically knew what to do!

Extensions/ Adaptions: Princess Peanut has made adaptions all of her very own by experimenting what will fit in the box. So many things that could be used – pom poms, lids, small balls, Little People (or similar figurines), small animal figurines, wooden blocks, cars….the list could go on forever! 😉 An easy activity for language development or following directions. Easily done by labeling what you are doing (‘in’, ‘out’), colour recognition, please/ thank you, asking for items “May I please have the…”, etc. So much from such a simple activity!
