I put some sugar in a pie tin, since sand is not readily available. We practiced writing her name, made shapes, and practiced letters and numbers, not to mention its great for their developing sensory skills. I think this is a good activity for any age. Riley loved playing with this and even got one of her polly pockets to join in the fun.

Been a busy month!
Have your little one get all her stuffed animals out, then put them in a big pile
Sort the animals in all different ways, here are a few that we did:
Biggest to smallest
Animals that roar
Animals that live on a farm
Same animals (she had a bunch of dogs & bears)
Depending on your assortment of animals, you could do tons more. The goal of this is that hopefully one day, you could simply say "go get your animals and sort them" and now you get some time to maybe, JUST SIT!
