Yesterday Puddles had a bit of a break through. He descided that he was ok with the feal of playdough, usually one poke and he can't stand the stuff on his fingers. Yesterday he spent quite a while making tiny rugby ball shapes, and he identified them as rugby balls which took me by surprise, don't know where he knew that from!
Today with the play dought I squashed it flat and then Puddle made some inprints with the star biscuit cutter (photos on the camera but I can't get them on to the computer!)
Using a cut up cerial box I made flash cards of the letters A M T S, after showing them each in turn and telling Puddles the sound they make, I layed them down on the floor and asked him where each letter was. Hes good with "A" but the rest is a bit hit and miss.
I also made cards with numbers 1 - 6 with the relevant amount of dots on each and he put small wooden lady birds on each dot. He seamed to enjoy doing this.
Puddles REALLY liked cbeebies numtums so hes been using the numtums website games which are good for him as only the space bar is needed he doesn't need any computer dexterity.
We also Made Oat honey and banana cookies.
Pre heat the oven to 170
Bake for 10 mins! nomnom!
I think next time I will put more banana and honey and less flour.
I also made Falafal from scratch for the first time
Rince and put one tins worth of chickpeas in boiling water and simmer for an hour. Drain and add in one finely chopped leak 1.5 tsp of corriander and 1.5tsp of cumin, 2 cloves garlic, 2 tsp gram flour, 2 tbs olive oil and 4 tbs warm water. Salt and Pepper. Mash it all up, put in to balls and slightly flatten them, then fry in olive oil for 5 mins each side.
They were nice but next time I will add more salt and some lemon juice.
