Playful Patterns

Buying toys are always a gamble at our house. Most day's he'd rather play with a rope, hammer, bungee cord or some other destructive material.

A few months ago I found Playful Patterns at a consignment shop and snatched it up. Although there are a million pieces, I took comfort knowing it didn't have batteries and make an annoying sound.

Inside the box are ~20 patterns with differing levels of complexity along with different colors of shapes made of foam.

Here he's working on a Robot (for R-week) and concentrating quite nicely.

I have to comment on the pajamas, because my son has those same ones, and they are his absolute favorite.

The game was a good find too. ;)

This is a bit embarrassing, but I just counted. I subscribe to 50 different blogs (through Google reader). So, most of my ideas are copy-cat ideas from another, more creative, moms.

Also, on Sunday nights, I usually plan a bunch of activites for the week. I used to copy Starry Sky Ranch's weekly ideas (but she's stopped her funschool.)

Here are some other sites I like to use along with help from blogs:

Plus my mom is also a preschool Sunday School teacher (who retired from public school teaching.) She's a creative genius with so much energy. I get a few ideas from her. If we lived closer than 2000 miles apart, I'd probably get more from her.
