Terrific Tot Sites ~ Diapers to Diplomas

This week we’re featuring Beth from Diapers to Diplomas as our Terrific Tot Site. Beth is mom to twin boys Owen and Eli who are 26 months old. She is also mom to a new little one, Garrett. Lately Beth and the boys have been working on their ABC’s together, but they’ve also done some other fun things. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
 
The boys sprinkled colored sugar on a picture that was outlined in glue….

Color matching using pipe cleaner circles…

Beth made a puzzle for the boys using foam for the puzzle pieces and a cardboard piece as the back and velcro to attach the pieces.

Cup and colored stick matching…

Beth made some of the CUTEST felt fish for her boys…

and then also some sea creature magnets with the felt leftovers.

She also made a most amazing felt ABC book…you need to check out the entire book….

What boys wouldn’t love stamping with Cool Whip on the table using shape sorter pieces? A MUCH lovelier alternative to shaving cream!

Love this simple idea for creating a ‘puzzle’ by tracing small board books that your little one has…

Be sure to stop by and visit Beth at Diapers to Diplomas and say hi to her while you are browsing around. She has some wonderful ideas to share with you all!
 
The Terrific Tot Sites feature is designed to help you find fun and safe websites to visit with your toddler ~ or gather great ideas to use with your tot. Some of the sites are educational in nature and some are just plain fun! If this is your first time visiting, be sure to check out some of the toddler websites that we've featured in the past. Hope you enjoy this Terrific Tot Site!

Oh my goodness, I'm so blessed by all you girls that do such wonderful things with their children..I'm GranAnnie who takes care of Ben age 4 once a week or more. He goes to daycare. I love the shape making with Cool Whip.. How cool is that~! This evening when I pick him up at daycare I'm going to do this with Ben. I also got this idea from not sure who, but you take shaving cream and put it in a plastic zip lock bag and add cotten balls with colors and put it into the bag.. The child gets to squeeze the bag and it makes the colors blend and make another color.. Like green and yellow makes blue.. I think that is so cool... Have a great idea...you are tiggeriffic~!
