Welcome back to How to homeschool your tot! We are on week 15 and Little Lady O is now 18 months.
Today, I’m sharing with you what our little girl explored and learned through play this week.

I’m a little behind putting this post up for you and I apologized for that. But my mind was all over the place this week and just have too much on the go. You know, I can only do so much in that little bit of time I do get from day-to-day. 😉
Anyways, let’s get to today’s topic!
The Set Up
- Pompoms + tongs + ice cube tray
- Golf tees + golf balls
- Balance bucket + blocks
- Beans + a cup
This week Little Lady O loved and enjoyed playing with pouring the beans from a cup to the bowl and she did not bad of a job of it either. Her big brother M showed her how to do it and she copied him.
I asked her to use the tray all the time when doing the pouring activity so if she spills up it can easily be cleaned up. I also showed her that if she does spill up, she can pick up the beans and put it back in her cup or bowl. She did pretty good with that!
However, she showed me that she much preferred to do a transfer activity instead by grabbing one of her pretend spoon toy to use for this activity. So I gave her a tablespoon to use with her beans since it works really well for scooping. So all week long she played the transfer activity with the tablespoon.
This week also I decided to add tongs with her pompom transfer activity and showed her how to use it. However, this (image below) is how she ended up using the tong, like a spoon! Well, it’s worth a try! We’ll keep working on it of course!
And yes, she wanted to wear her booties with her outfit today! Lol!
This next activity of balancing golf balls on golf tees was a little bit advance for her. This picture of her trying to balance the golf ball on the golf tee was a great catch! Because this moment and one other time on another day were the only times she tried this activity. I guess she wasn’t quite ready for it and that’s totally fine!
The balance bucket idea was from her big bro Mr. S. And just like his older brother (Mr. M) Mr. S wanted so bad for his little sister to pick this activity as her favorite this week. But it wasn’t the case. Obviously, she doesn’t understand the concept of “balancing” yet. To her, it was just a couple of containers to put blocks in to. But the boys and I played with it a bit and showed her the things she can put inside and try to balance. And she liked helping with that!
In the end we ended up weighing all the materials we used for her activities and see if we can balance them. And as you can see, the weight of the beans pretty much equals the weight of everything else from her tot trays. Pretty neat eh?
I hope you enjoyed this post.
