Tot Trays: On Tiger's Shelf for F

Tiger is 14.5 month old this week.

Thanks for all the kind remarks and interest in Tiger's activities via emails. I thought I will share this week's tot tray shelf set-up.

Our alphabet of the week: F
Theme: Human Body and The Five Senses



Clockwise from upper right hand corner:
Right top shelf (L to R):
1. Mr Potato Head from Toys R us for learning body parts
2. F is for frog flashcard (from MPH) with groove for tracing the letter f
3. F is for fish flashcard (from ELC) with touchy-feely fish
4. Some printouts on A4 with different things starting with F
5. Small photo frame from Ikea to write down letter and theme of the week
6. Melissa & Doug (M&D) stacker

Right middle shelf (L to R):
1. Mommy-made letter box with EVA foam letter F and magnetic alphabets from letter a to f. He is suppose to put his hand inside and feel for the letters. (sense of touch)
2. Mommy-made sight/discovery bottle with sponge pieces, sparkles, and small toys
3. Mommy-made sound and smell bottles 

Sound bottles with EBM bottles that I don't plan to keep anymore
1. With small tangram pieces
2. Small wooden clothes peg
3. Rice

Smell bottles with cotton buds:
Made from condiment bottles for RM 1 each
1. Lavender essence
2. Almond essence. Yummy!
3. No smell:  for control and comparison

Caution: If your child is able to open the bottles, please seal it with glue/hot gun. Tiger will sign 'open' but he can't do it by himself, so I didn't seal it. He is allowed into the study room with supervision only.

This is already a hit with Tiger.
When I asked him to choose one item from the shelf,
he immediately pointed to the bottles

Playing with the shakers

Right bottom shelf (L to R):
1. M&D shape puzzle
2. Placemat from egg week

Left bottom shelf
1. Wooden rods with numbers from egg week. I added number 3 for more challenge

Left middle shelf
1. Ping pong balls and palette for palmar transfer

This is a 'recycled' tray.
He didn't enjoy this at 12 month old

Left upper shelf
1. Peg puzzle for human face

Basket:
To keep right brain practise material for the week, human body flashcards, TW flashcards, completed worksheets and art work as well as knick knacks.

Not in picture:
1. Poster with labelled parts of the human body
2. Mat to present tot trays
3. Dinosaur sensory box. Still a favourite!

Tiger learned to sign 'dinosaur' (clawed hand with a tiny roar)
beacause he wanted to ask for the box!!
