Toddler Fun!

We had some unseasonably warm weather this February, so one afternoon we picked up this little guy from daycare and headed to Clinton Lake State Park for a fun playdate!
He has grown so much since our last park visit!  He can independently navigate pretty much all of the playground equipment with minimal intervention from us!  Of course we still stayed very close by just in case!  
He had a banana for a snack while he played!

Found this fun idea on Pinterest for a matching game, you hide different printed and laminated shapes in shredded paper and your favorite toddler finds them and matches them up to a printed card.  I made one for Jax and he tried it out Friday evening!

At first he didn't like the shredded paper spilling out of the container and he was busy picking up the wayward escapees and putting them back in the container.  With a bit of guidance from his Mom he found all of the shapes nestled in the shredded paper and then he independently matched them up to the printed shapes!  

Next, he got really interested in exploring the texture of the paper by squishing and lifting it with his hands!  

AND THEN, the real fun began as he scattered the paper every which way, we threw it up in the air and let it rain down on our heads, we put it on each others heads and scattered it all around!  Then he would begin to sing his 'clean up, clean up' song and put it all back in the container only to dump it out and start all over again!


Hopefully Susan doesn't mind if I include this Saturday morning yoga picture that Josh texted to us, it is just too darn cute to not share!  Saturday evening he showed us the pictures of the rest of their yoga workout poses and they were all equally cute and well executed by the toddler junior yogi!  Notice he has a post workout water cup and snack conveniently stored on the shelf behind them!

Never a dull moment at their house!
