February Activity Trays

This month we are doing the theme Valentines and friendship. I tried my best to incorporate these themes into this months trays.

Pouring red heart gems

Clothes pin pinching to a heart container

Open and close Valentine basket

Foam Heart Lacing. I got this idea from Tired, Need Sleep

Stamping valentine stamps

Unlock my heart. I got This Idea From Leptir's Blog

Tonging/tweezing heart erasers

I know this has nothing to do with Valentines but...Jada got these for Christmas and I have been trying to introduce them to her over time. She and I were so overwhelmed with all that she got for Christmas that I thought this was a far better idea them letting the toys lay around forgotten

I love this little magnetic doll that you dress up in all those cute little outfits. Another Christmas gift

Magnetic Alphabet pages. we just use flat marbles or cheerios for ours . As usual I got this at the Making Learning Fun Site

Skewer pushing hearts I found this idea over at The Shafer Families Blog

Heart button snake. Spin off from my bear button snake from last month. I also saw this on Leptir's blog

Lots of Christmas gifts that I had put away are making an appearance this month.
Santa brought her rag Numbers. I made some Alphabet ones and just never got around to making the numbers. So I bought them HERE I bought mine when she had a sale

There are 11 numbers 0 to 10 in this set

I love this matching set I bought HERE

I know this next tray is a repeat from January but Jada loved it so much I put it out again. This time I will add a few drops of red food coloring to the water.

Washing and drying the cutlery then finding the right spot to place each piece

I got this Valentine water transfer idea from HERE. However, I think I have seen it on at least 3 other blogs
I am showing two activity trays in one because they are different sizes. This is for 2 children to work at the same time ( a new exciting improvement for the children)

Thanks for all the GREAT ideas!! I really apperciate all the work you put into posting on your blog. I did my first sensory bin with my 2 year old and he is constantly asking for it! The rice has become "snow" perfect for the yucky weather we seem to always be having! Thanks again!!
