This is part of the activity advent I’m doing with Little Monkey. I found this fun little activity at Green Jello with Carrots and, for $2, it wasn’t worth the time it would take me to put it all together. So, I forked over the cash (actually I ended up spending about $15 and Little Monkey’s Christmas will be full of busy boxes I can use once this baby gets here, but that’s a whole ‘nother post). All I had to do was print the files off, cut them out and laminate them. I put magnets on the back and Little Monkey can play with them on the fridge or on the medium-sized baking sheet I had left over from the three pack I bought for my mom’s menu board. (I actually just bought a smaller pan that Little Monkey can handle better from the Dollar Tree). It’s been a good activity when we’re out running errands and the little man is getting tired of his car seat.
If you don’t want to cough over the $2, you could spend an hour or two making your own pieces, but I thought it was worth it. And when my little destructo-saurus ruins the first set (because he will…), I just have to print out a new set.
