LEGO seek and find jar!
Legos, Legos, everywhere! I have officially entered the stage of the little boy that loves Legos. I have stepped on them and I have vacuumed them up, so I thought it was time to do something productive with these tiny bits of joy. And this fun “I Spy” activity was the perfect way to start to our Transportation theme!
WHAT YOU NEED: Legos including several Lego tires, an empty plastic jar (we used a popcorn jar)
WHAT TO DO: Have your child fill up the jar with Lego pieces including the tires. Stop when the Legos are about an inch from the top to leave room to shake it up! Then, do just that….shake, shake, shake! Can your little one turn the jar to spy any tires? How many can he find?
HOW TO CHANGE IT UP:
-Vary the size of the tires going into the jar and how many you have put in. Have your child find tires of each specific size (for example, find 3 small and 2 large).
-Make it a game! Who can shake the jar and find the most tires in 20 seconds?
SKILL AREAS ADDRESSED: Bilateral coordination, fine motor skills, visual motor integration, visual perceptual skills
