Around Christmas time, I found these shape sets by Melissa & Doug real cheap, and put them away thinking they might come in handy for a break on an overfull day.
Shh, don’t tell the big ones they are supposed to be for “little” kids. ;0)
They explored symmetry and balance.
Several minutes of quiet enthrallment. Can’t beat that.
What are some activities your kiddos do to break up the day?
