Then I placed some of her little toys in the box and tried to play a little "tactile discrimation" game where she had to close her eyes, reach in and tell me what she felt, but that was a little too complicated for her. (Mainly because she just wanted to look in the box!!)
So....instead we played hide and seek with the toys! I would hide the toys all over our family room and then she would run around, find them and put them back in the box. She absolutely LOVED this game!! We took turns hiding and finding the objects. It was so cute because she would hide them in the same spots I had just hidden them and then look at me and say "Where all the toys, mommy?".

Here's a glimpse at what went down at our house today on this very snowy day!!!
Sweet Girl sure does LOVE water!! She will stand in her Learning Tower and play for a hour non-stop!! She loves washing dishes, catching ice cubes and pouring water between two cups. She's actually pretty good at keeping all the water in the sink too, believe it or not.
Here are some of our tot trays for this week. (If you want to know more about Tot Trays visit 1+1+1=1 blog or The Shafer Family blog....both have great ideas, pictures, printables, etc...)Sweet Girl really enjoys our trays and I sure do love to see her working so hard.
Working on those fine motor skills by putting mini animals in a pill box
Practicing counting beads (she'd much rather just play with the beads rather than count!!) Counting card printed from here.
Matching colored objects to the colored circles (thanks Time for Tots for this great activity!)
Dropping poker chips into plastic container (again, another great Time for Tots activity that Sweet Girl does over and over again!!)
Putting magnets on the snowman (snowman picture printed from here).
And what did Little Man do all day???? Well....he just practiced being cute!!
How did you spend your snowy day?
