Child Activated Play

Cover Photo In the past, I often got frustrated when my son couldn’t sit down to do his work.  I decided to choose my battles with my son when it comes to learning styles.  Maybe he just need more time to mature.   I came up with different learning activities for child activated play time.

Today, he wanted to play with his box of cars.  These are the games and activities we tried.

(Matching Toy to Picture)matching3

This activity allows the child to look at the details closely before making a decision .

(Counting, Size, Color)


How many wheels do you see?  How many yellow ones? How many red ones?

How many wheels have white tires?  How many black ones?


Different Types of patterning

Patterns are not just shapes, colors , or sizes.

You can use “flip”, “turn”, or ” rotate.”  what wonderful new words your toddlers can learn!

(Memory Game)
