Izzy’s color mixing activity of the day was kind of spontaneous. I had another activity planned originally, but when we went to try it, it was an epic fail. So we did the first thing that came to my mind and it didn’t turn out too bad. We simply had three cups of water, one blue, one red, and one yellow. I then gave him an empty cup to mix two of the colors in. The catch was that he had to use either an eyedropper or a medicine dropper to transfer the water with. His tool of choice was the medicine dropper and he enjoyed watching the colors come together in the empty cup to form a new color.
For Sydney, I set up an awesome baby obstacle course with toys, bubble wrap, furniture, snacks, and lots of other great things for her to explore. Baby obstacle courses are great because they combine so many skills into one big activity. We had plenty of opportunities for language development, our bubble wrap runway added a sensory aspect, and all the crawling and pulling up on things was great for her gross motor skills. I knew this was going to be a difficult activity to do with Izzy around so we set it up while Izzy was out having some one on one time with daddy and she enjoyed spending her evening exploring and learning. Her favorite part about the obstacle course was playing with her piggy bank without having brother take it from her since that is the one toy they always seem to fight over.
