Letter O Tot School Part 2

This was one of the only weeks where Henry was almost completely uninterested in any of the "extra" tot school activities that I set out. In the two weeks that these were out Henry only played with one of them. I guess he was so focused on the letter O tot school trays that he just ignored this work. 

It's always hard when you want them to check out everything you've made for the week and they don't. I try really hard not to force it on him or to take it personally, but that is hard. Thankfully,  I have you guys to share my ideas wit, hehe. 

Without further ado, here were the seemingly uninteresting {to Henry} letter O activities -- 

Wooden Owl Painting: I really thought Henry would enjoy this. But, he is never really into creating art {which is why we do so little of it} and I should have known better.

Letter O Sensory Bin: To be fair to Henry, he did have his open ended sensory bin this whole time, so maybe two sensory bins was just too much. He played with this once in two weeks. He enjoyed matching some of the wooden memory pieces.

Pastels and an Owl print: This owl print was something I owned from a large coloring book. I paired it with pastels. This was the only activity Henry did over and over. He had never used pastels before and really enjoyed them. He always returned the work to its spot so the next he would pull the picture out and continue.

Letter O Dry Erase: He did this once in the two weeks too. Usually his dry erase sheets are a big favorite, I think it may just be time to  take a break from them. 


Letter O Magnet Board: This was completely ignored.

  1. Where did you find the little wooden owl? So cute! Ethan's the opposite of Henry. HATES dry erase, but loves to make art!

    1. The wooden owl is from Michael's! They have tons of unfinished wood shapes for all under $0.50.

      I love all of the projects you get to do with Ethan! Henry just hates all of that. He paints for 1 minute and is just done. He has no patience to sit and create. But he could color on a dry erase sheet for an hour at a time.

  2. I would notice the same thing that often things would go ignored, but I rationalized it in my mind that we'll definitely re-visit all these themes as he gets older and gets different things out of them, so I am just getting ahead on future work :) My Henry is the same about not being too into art right now - bums me out b/c I want to pain! But must follow the lead...
