"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised."

Nursery Rhyme

Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them.

Speech & Vocabulary

Giving Directions: (at eating time) Put your spoon in your mouth.

Indoor Games

Clothespin Drop

I collect about 10 clothespins and a large canning jar.  Standing in front of the jar, drop the clothespins into the jar.  You can let your toddler be as close as she wants to.  Dump out the clothespins and try again!

Optional:  Choose an exercise from an exercise book to use with your toddler daily.
