So, for the past few days, I've been digging up sensory activities to do (albeit in short spurts) to keep them engaged and entertained. Some are winners. Some are total misses.
|Water sensory bag|
|Baby's first play-dough (homemade)|
|She liked it!|
|More interested in the spatula than the dough|
|Finger painting with colored yogurt.|
|She doesn't understand why he doesn't want to paint!|
|Makin' a mess with flour|
Also, it's best to introduce these activities when the babies are most awake, alert, and in good moods. I think the finger-painting debacle happened because they were overtired.
Lastly, Ben does not like to touch squishy, soft, or wet/mushy things. He had no interest in any of it. Maybe he's a boy who won't like to get dirty?? (Or, more likely, he was confused why I wasn't letting him eat things that I put on his high chair tray).
Nap transition is going .... okay. Today they made it from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. before eating lunch and heading to bed. They're chit chatting in their cribs now, hopefully will fall asleep soon! Then I hope they sleep until 2:30 or later. A momma can dream.
