Waiting for school to start so I can try my new evil octopus teamwork game. This game consists of hiding multiple pieces of the same letter around a room (so for example, there would be like three letter “A” hiding together) (8 letters total) and the kids have to explore to find the letter. Once one finds the letter, they have to tell the others so that they can hurry to get their own same letter piece (Hey over here! I found the A!) and then they have to all bring it to the evil octopus for one of its legs….each time, one of the evil octopus’s henchmen (a monster) guarding a leg gets thrown in the dungeon, ultimately the octopus has no henchmen left and the octopus is destroyed.
Something like that. It’s a work in progress. Ideas?
|Yes these are fly swatters, brand new. Blow up a balloon and use these instead of hands to swat at the balloon. Hard for many of our little kiddos.|
|So I like to collect clear take-out containers when I am eating out, because I think it’s sometimes fun to store stuff in them where the kids can see it. I guess it could become like a giant I Spy thing.|
All my kids love bugs/insects. I use most of these for tong/tweezer activities, and sometimes as characters for our games, if it’s just the two of us, to make it more interesting. Went a little bug-crazy today. Hey whatever works to keep our OT kids interested 🙂
