Beth. Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 DD#2 will be two in April. She is highly verbal, knows all of her upper and lower case letters and sounds and can count and identify numbers. She wants to write, cut, use the computer mouse - everything big sister is doing - and screams in frustration because she just cannot get her little fingers to do what she wants them to do. I am looking for some ideas on "educational" activities or toys that will challenge her brain, but yet meet her physical abilities. She has no interest in any of the LeapFrog items we have. I believe she sees them as toys and is bored by them even though she has not mastered them (or maybe the annoying sounds/voices turn her off). She does know how to play; she will spend 30-45 minute stretches with her Little People or Playmobil. She is also starting to do a lot of pretend play with big sister (kitchen, dolls, camping, school, etc). We do coloring sheets, drawing, counting, ABCs, reading, Signing Time, etc but she wants more. What ideas do you have? I found wooden pattern blocks and some activity cards to go with them, but I don't have any other leads. Thank you for your help. She is going to be my challenge. Big sister has always fit nicely in the normal/average/age appropriate category. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
