I came across some stirring sticks at Target (I think they were 2 or 3 dollars) and thought they would be great for Tot School. J likes taking them out and putting them back inside their container.
I gave him an old Gerber Puffs container, and he had fun putting them in that as well.
K enjoyed them, too. He liked laying them out on the ground to make a big long line. We made two parallel lines and pretended it was a road for his cars. We also used them to make shapes. We used them as rhythm sticks and hit them together while we sang a song.
And I showed K how to make some letters with them - of course his favorite was the K!
