May 27, 2014

Follow us on Pinterest for tons of great kids activities and ideas.

Welcome to TUESDAY TOTSBrought to you weekly by Learn with Play at home (that's us), Rainy Day Mum and One Perfect Day.

This week we are showcasing

"10 Rock Activities"

Rocks are a favourite material at our place and are often used in a variety of sensory activities or imaginative play scenes. We have a large tub full of smooth black river rocks that we purchased for a few dollars from a place that sells garden supplies. Here in Australia places like Bunnings, The Reject Shop, Big W, etc. all stock them and won't set you back much for enough to play with. Here are a bunch of fun activities and ideas we found for playing and learning with rocks.

1. Alphabet Rocks from Thrive 360 Living

2. Cleaning rocks sensory play from Learn with Play at Home

3. Make a face emotion stones from Where Imagination Grows

4. Tumble painting with rocks  from Motherhood on a Dime

5. Rock Art project from Mosswood Connections

7. Story stones from Happy Hooligans

8. Counting and sorting with love bugs from Where Imagination Grows 

9. Treasure Rocks from Learn with Play at Home 

10. Mini construction site from Squiggles and Bubbles

Now for the Tuesday Tots link-up
Announcement: In order to keep up with the demands of our own households and also those of our readers, Cerys (from Rainy Day Mum), Ness (from One Perfect Day) and myself, have decided to open the Tuesday Tots link up to play ideas, activities and child related posts suitable from birth to teens. 
Where once we only shared ideas for those under the age of 5, we will now be sharing activities, ideas and posts for a larger range of ages/abilities. We look forward to seeing all the new material that is linked up from talented bloggers worldwide and featuring our top picks for the week.

Be sure to check back on all the fabulous ideas that are linked up each week starting on a Tuesday. It is from these linkups that we choose posts to feature.

(please read the guidelines before linking up)

Happy playing,
Debs :)
