Tucker received a "mother load" of cars from a family friend. He absolutely loves his cars and trucks...and that is what we play. Usually it entails putting them down the slide and then collecting them after each and EVERY SINGLE ONE is down at the end...not one left that hasn't gone down the slide. Then we pick up while we sing the clean up song and we start all over again. NOW, it takes a while longer to get through all the cars....3 tubs and some bigger ones that don't fit. (thank you Nina for the cars) We also make our car noises and make the cars crash ...all great things for Tucker's imagination and growth. I LOVE to see him pretend play...it makes my heart soar.
PS-we work on our colors as we hand him the cars, stating and having him repeat the color of each one. I am hoping one day he will start saying the color of the car before we tell him the color.
