Tot School

Lucas is 18Months
Tot School

This will probably be our last Tot School post until after we move. It’s only a few weeks to our moving date and its really time for me to start packing our toys as well as the rest of the house!

What we did this week….

We worked with our Melissa and Doug bead sequencing set. I asked Lucas to use the green beads and he was doing good finding them....

... until he got a blue bead. Colors are something we still need to work on : )

We had a new sensory item this week, puzzles! Lucas really enjoyed this. He liked spooning the pieces into his cup.

We also worked on a puzzle this week
We did this Melissa and Doug puzzle we did the frame together and he put the animals in himself.

He really liked doing a big boy puzzle like he watches his brother do!
But his favourite part of course was tearing it apart so we could start all over again. We did this puzzle 3 times just this day, and several other times throughout the week.

Lucas likes to paint at the easel but this week was the first time he coloured on the dry erase board easel. Regular markers tend to not draw well on there, so we used our window markers and they stayed on great.

He really liked doing this, although now I'm a little nervous about him finding a marker somewhere and coloring on my walls!
When he was finished coloring his picture I gave him a wet cloth to erase his picture.
He liked this part too!

Lucas is really in to babies right now. He likes to take care of his babies by wrapping them in blankies and feeding them pretend food and sharing his cups with them.

So yesterday when I was at a garage sale and seen a doll stroller for 50 cents I just had to get it for him!

He loves it! It was hard for me to even get a picture of him with it he as been running around the house with it since we brought it home!

Lucas likes to point to himself and say baby...

Which has him trying to get into the stroller himself, what a little monkey!  : )

Once we are settled in our new house I am planning on making our tot school time more focused. I'm not sure about themes yet, but I would definitely like to start introducing the alphabet and numbers to him. Right now I am working on making a form for me to jot down my ideas for each week. Once I'm finished making it I will post about it here if anyone is interested.



  1. Wow, it is your last tot school post for a while and I only just found your blog. I just don't have time to make it down the list to everyone's blogs each week with three little ones. I hope to take some time to check out your blog. Love the pictures of Lucas with the stroller. My girls love climbing in the doll stroller themselves (though they get stuck more often than not, but of course they don't learn). By the way, that looks like a nifty puzzle.

  2. What a great idea to put puzzle pieces in the sensory table. I have a one year old and he would love that!

  3. Hiya-sorry to hear it will be your last post for a while-really enjoy your tot school posts but hope the move goes well!. You have sdome fab ideas-I am going to try the puzzel pieces in a sensory tub! Also, love the easel-kee saying I will get my two an easel

  4. Wow, looks like you had a great week. I haven't seen that Bead Sequencing puzzle before. I think I'm gonna have to get it!

  5. What a fun week! Good to know those window markers work on the white board :-)
