I can Teach my child (icanteachmychld.com). I can't wait to go over this website with a fine tooth comb. There are tons of activities listed. Too many to try to go through all in one sitting.
V - craft sticks and velcro --- I think this is a neat idea, however the previous pinner went on to comment how good they would be for making shapes and letters. That's true, but wouldn't it be SO much better for the ♥child♥ to discover what these cool materials are capable of, rather than our showing them and possibly stifling their intrinsic motivation?
Oooh! I have all the stuff on hand to make something like this, too! Put velcro dots on the ends of popsicle sticks. Kids can make letters or shapes over and over again.
