Today we traveled to China. Eva found it on her map and colored it in. She also got another stamp in her passport.
The sensory tub has been filled with a staple in China- rice. We colored some red and some pink and I added a set of red heart scoops and a bunch of red pom poms. The rice is a huge hit. Eva has always been drawn to rice tables and will spend hours scooping and feeling the rice.
I also made a few felt fortune cookies for Eva to practice transferring between take-out containers with chopsticks. It is definitely tricky!
The fortune cookies are really easy to make. Take a felt circle, fold it in half and place a bit of ribbon in the fold but sticking out at one end and then sew it shut. Using a needle and thread, make a stitch 1/3 of the way in on the fold and another 1/3 from the other end, pull tight and tie off. It should fold in like a real fortune cookie.
