Toddler Circle Time Tip

One of my favorite tips for a successful toddler circle time is using props. I made this 5 Little Monkeys prop when I first started teaching, 18 years ago.

Fun Construction Toy for Toddlers
 
02:23
Last winter I reviewed the Goobi 20 piece construction set. Since then, our 2 year olds have had so much fun playing with them! A great activity for fine motor development and color recognition. It's hard to find quality educational toys for children under 3 that are open ended. This was a nice find!

Toddler and Preschool Water Play Activity
 
03:11
I used these Pop Toobs with our water table for some fun toddler and preschool water fun! The children really had to concentrate as they used cups to pour water into the toobs. It was also a great lesson in gravity as they learned which side needed to be up and which side needed to be down.

Process Art with Toddlers and Preschoolers
 
03:19
We love using process art with toddlers and preschoolers because it's open-ended and does not have an expected type of outcome. In this particular process art activity, our toddlers used bath poufs to move paint around in circular motions, mixing the different colors while doing so.

How to Build Toddler Fine Motor Skills at the Easel
 
03:20
We love using our easel for painting activities, and it's a great way to build fine motor skills. One of our favorite toddler easel activities is using a brayer to roll paint on paper. The vertical surface puts the arm in a different position than when working on a flat surface, and strengthens the wrist and hands.
