Misc Activities

I drew and cut out 6 different yellow circles varying in radius from 1 cm to 6 cm. I pasted the circles to the index card for the additional stiffness. I made different pattens with the same size yellow circles. She has to replicate the patterns using the circles by keeping the same size yellow circles over the pattern. Dheekshu did pretty well. I am planning to make more circles in blue colour with difference in radius only by 0.5cm and include both yellow and blue circles in the pattern and make her replicate the pattern.

We tried doing Mystery art inspired from the book "Preschool" by MaryAnn Kohl. Baking soda dissolved in water is used to paint on the white paper. The painting disappears as it dries out. Water colouring should bring back the painting. However the painting did not appear after water colouring for us. I need to check that once before we try once again.

Dheekshu is very comfortable inserting toothpick into toothpick dispenser for quite sometime now. It does take a lot of concentration. She can insert around 15 to 20 in one shot. After that it is very much difficult for her to concentrate on that activity.
