I have another fabulous felt busy box idea for you today: ice cream sundaes! What fun!
The inside of the lid has a piece of felt that fits snugly already, so I cut a felt bowl(one could cut ice cream cones too) and added it:
Next, I cut the “scoops” of ice cream. We have vanilla, strawberry, mint and chocolate “flavours”. I cut small pieces of yarn to be the sprinkles and pompoms act as cherries. One could add more fruit pieces and wafers too!
Now your child can build his/her own ice cream sundae!
While building, fine motor skills are used to pick up the pieces(those small sprinkles works great on the pincer grip) and creativity in putting together a sundae. One could add an mathematical objective to the game for example: “order” an ice cream sundae with 2 scoops of vanilla and 2 scoops of mint, how many scoops all together?
