Pushing Pom Poms from Mommy Misfit {18 mos} ~ Pom Poms rock! My tots always LOVED doing this simple activity, most tots do!007


Clothespin/pom pom transfer from Gift of Curiosity ~ Pom Poms are a must have for tots, so simple and versatile.  A few different trays, some clothespins, spoons/tongs and you have it!Winter-learning-and-fun-2


Tiny Stickers from Moms Have Questions Too ~ look at that concentration!  Watching little kids with stickers is a favorite of mine!ts


Stickers {bottom right} and Operation {top left} from D’Learning Hour {34 mos} ~ I never thought to get Operation out for the young ones.  Using games for fine motor skills is always great fun!  Stickers again too!IMG_0424

Please read this carefully before linking up! This may no longer be the linky for you, so please glance through this list to be sure you want to stick around and link up with us!
By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept  .
