I Can Paste Toddler Big Skills for Little Hands Review
I had the wonderful opportunity to review the workbook I Can Paste Toddler Big Skills for Little Hands from Timberdoodle. When I was offered this opportunity I knew it would be a great way to have some one-on-one time with Hannah. Unfortunately, it took me a little longer than I anticipated to find the time to work with her with this workbook. Every time I tried to give the older girls something different to work on so that Hannah and I could use the book Hannah wanted to do what the older girls were doing. Go figure!
Thankfully, when I did get her to sit down at the table long enough to get interested, she really got into this book (and then didn’t want to stop). I already knew she loved to glue. This is something we do often, and one of the activities I have allowed the younger girl to join in on while working with the older girl(s).
I have been coming up with gluing activities for the girls since Tabitha was not quite 2 years old. But it was so nice to have a professional book to use. The quality of this workbook is great and all the activities are in full color.
As the parent I needed to cut out the pictures that Hannah was to glue onto the bigger picture. We start out with some simple activities where she was to glue the clouds, fish and stars wherever she wanted to on the designated page.
I sat beside her, cutting out the pictures and counting as she glued them on.
As we work our way through the book the activities get harder in that she has to start gluing the cut outs to specific parts of the page.
Usually I have Hannah place the glue on the back of the cut outs with a glue stick. But for this apple tree I decided to use white glue and place it directly on the tree so we could count easier. I have always tried to have some gluing activities where we practice counting, and I feel it works better and is more concrete if I place the glue down for the specific number.
I not sure if you can tell, but in the first few pages she was allowed to put her cut outs anywhere on the page. In these pictures she has to put them on the specific part of the page (the tree and the plate).
And in this next couple of pictures she is putting a simple 2 piece puzzle together. She is pretty good at placing puzzle pieces into tray puzzles to match the pictures or the shapes. She wasn’t quite sure how to match up two sides of a picture to make one picture. That will be something we will work on more.
