Having colored pens at home or any form of coloring materials can be very handy when you have toddlers at home.
Since school is already done for Philippine schools (School is from June-March), I try to give my kids activities in between play times using whatever I have available in the house.
Popsicle sticks. I have large ones available.
We started with the animal colors. We’ve recently watched Madagascar the movie so we used the animals that were present there like zebra, giraffe, tiger, etc.
Then we added people and other characters. They then used these as characters in their play times. Kids can then use it like characters for their stories and other activities.
There are so many things you can do with these ordinary Sharpies and popsicle sticks. =) Have you tried any activity using either of the two materials? Share them in the comment box below. =)
