Winter Play Activity Book 

Winter vacation has begun for T today and as soon as the clock struck 9, I wondered  how best to keep her engaged.

Enter the Choice Activity book. T loves coloring. So , we both colored on these little pages from a Dollar tree notepad. While she made her favorite items, I drew thirty activities with her playthings that she could choose from. A la restaurant menu. 

It was fun for her and me because I had to rack my brains for the last five. Plus, it had to be reasonably identifiable.

 Front page: that can also be colored 
Activities to choose from:  
 Mix of creative, imaginative and physical activities : 

  

Includes only existing toys: the “mousetrap” is a fun boards game by Elefun and Friends and not a rodent exterminator tool!   

Activities include educational and development items:  
 Point was to give a choice and have fun too: 
I hope to have T color/ check off each item in these holidays. The advantages of this little booklet are:

  • I have a list of activities and don’t need to rack my brains for ideas
  • It serves as a fun list for T to choose and follow instead of feeling bored and indecisive.
  • It can be colored and is small enough to carry around.
  • It is easy to add to if we do come up with other items we want to add
  • I hope to share the resuls (success and Lessons) in the new Year, which means more materials for blog posts
