I created a zoo animal themed visual perception activity that can be re-used by laminating or printed once off.
Mom basically places the zoo animals in certain circles and the child can then copy the placement on their own circle mat.
Here I laminated the circle mats and the pieces. I then had Aaliya copy it.
Here I just printed it out and had her glue them in the right places.

If you would like to see a similar activity but for an older child please let me know in the comments section.
Deen is 4 years 7 months
Deen started the week working on a fine motor color mixing activity from Mama Jenn.
Thereafter he tried this magnifying glass activity. He had to match the small items to the big items by using the magnifying glass to see which was the same picture.
I printed out my Elmo Cut and Paste Activity, laminated it and added some prestik (sticky like clay) to the bottom of the face pieces. This activity is great for visual/perceptual awareness. It is interesting to see where your child places the eyes, nose, mouth in relation to each other.
We played with play dough. You can see him working his arm and shoulder muscles. He also made a “rainbow” with his play dough.
He worked on crossing his mid-line by tracing from one side of the paper(and his body) to the other side.
I called out shapes and he had to place pom poms on the correct shape.
We worked on letter of the week activities from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
He poured beans and really enjoyed his trays this week.
We also did my printable letter E Craft. If you would like to download it click here. (The idea for the elephant E was not created by me but the printable activity is made by me). I included the Elephant “E” but forgot to save the egg “e”. If you would still like this please send me an email or leave a comment below and I can make this available to you.
