A simple way of learning patterns by making the little ones to think logically just by using recycled items that are available at home 😎
- Bottle caps
- A4 sheet
- Draw a table with 5 rows and 4 columns and again divide the first row of the last three columns into halves and also draw circles on the first column (leaving the first row) keeping the bottle cap as the model as shown below
- Draw circles using the bottle caps and make patterns of your choice using the sketches and cut them as shown below
[I have used the color (orange+blue, yellow+brown, green+pink) combinations]
- Color the last three columns of the first row with the exact Color combination and also draw the outline of the pattern used, inside the circle on the first columns of the last four rows as shown below
- Glue the patterned paper circles onto the bottle caps
- Finally place the bottle caps along with the A4 sheet and help your little one think logically and match the patterned bottle caps with their corresponding Color combinations😎
Make this simple easy to make activity which helps your little ones brain in developing concentration skills along with some brain gymnastics my lovelies😍

💁♀️This booklet for Baby Moo goes back to a year ago… I just wanted to share with you all my mini project for him when he was in his early stages of developing his painting and writing skills 😎
- A4 sheet
- Paint/crayons/colour pencils
The Book Making:-
- Take a sheet of A4 paper and fold the page in half ??
- Unfold the sheet and again fold in along the other dimension as shown below??
- Again unfold and fold the sheet in quarters as shown below??
- When you unfold the sheet again you can clearly see that you have creased along the edges, to make 8 panels which in turn makes the pages for the booklet??
(You can either write/draw your contents now on each panels or wait till completed ?)
- Make a slit in the middle of the sheet (four panels to be exact) as shown below??
- Raise up the middle panels as shown??
- Gather all the panels together as shown to make a mini booklet??
- Finally write all the contents as per wish … Here I have made a “Shape Coloring Book” for Baby Moo ???
????This is how our coloring book after coloring looked like????
Make this super easy mini booklet at home and give some creative learning to your little ones my lovelies ?

This super simple and most effective activity can be made in 15mins?
- Chart (scrap)
- Felt sheets (scrap)
- Coins (one bigger than the other)
- Strong glue or a glue gun (since we are using Felt)
How To Make:
- Draw a caterpillar on a chart using a pencil and the coins (I drew the caterpillar on a paper first and then glued it on the chart)
- First circle becomes the head, so that circle should be bigger than the rest of the following circles and also draw some eyes, antenna, mouth…, and the remaining five circles becomes the body of the caterpillar
- Take the felt sheets (since I drew only five circles I took the felt in colors of red, blue, green, yellow and orange) and cut two circles in each using the same coin
- Glue one Felt circle on each circle on the chart(or paper)
- And the other circles is for the toddler to match
You can add as many colors you want and also you can extend this activity by adding some numbers onto the circle and do a number matching activity along with the color matching activity?
This Activity helps in color recognition and to learn the names of the primary colors and also to learn about the caterpillars ?
Stay tuned!!! For more activities from the ChennaiMom❤️??
This is a fun sorting activity using rainbow colors of craft sticks, which are bright enough to grab the attention of the toddler, totally into the activity and hence can be used as the quite time activity at home.
This Super simple activity takes about 15 mins to do.
- A4 sheets (the number of sheets required depends upon the surface and number colors you wish to use)
- Colored crafts sticks (also called as ice-cream sticks or Popsicle sticks)
- Sketch pens
- Crayons (optional)
- Choose the surface, where you’re gonna do the pockets (here I have used baby moos writing desk)
- Cover the surface with A4 sheets using some tapes (for me it took two sheets to cover the 3/4th of the desk)
- Fold the other A4 sheets in half (in vertical direction) and tape the half on top of the sheets on the surface horizontally (again it took two sheets for me to do on this desk)
- Fold the sheets and tape the sides leaving the upper side open and on doing so, it forms one long horizontal pocket with three (left+down+right) sides closed
- To make multiple pockets, just divide it (into the number of pockets you wish to have) by taping them in between and write the names of the colors (of your choice) using sketch pens
- Place the colored craft sticks in a box and encourage your baby to do the matching, by sorting and inserting them into the pockets of same color (you can always show them on how to do, by inserting one or two crafts sticks to their corresponding color pockets)
After inserting all the colored crafts sticks (all by himself) to their pockets, Baby moo self appreciated his work
- You can even extend the activity by giving some crayons of same color as that of the crafts sticks and ask them to color the names written
This activity helps: in the development of fine motor skills; in color recognition; to develop the ability to sort; in counting (the number of craft sticks) 😎
Make this super simple DIY activity and have fun sorting the rainbow of colors at home lovelies 😍
Stay tuned!!! For more activities from the ChennaiMom❤️🙏
This color sorting activity with shape is a fun way, for our babies, to practice color recognition and sorting out the colorful shape. This activity will also keep them moving and gaining knowledge through play which leads to the development of gross motor skills.
- Foam sheets or color papers (of your choices)
- Felt sheets (as same color as, of the foam sheets)
- Cut various shapes from the felt sheets (or you can just use the felt shapes if you have already)
- Place down the foam sheets (or color papers) on the floor (I placed it on the yoga mat) and place the felt shapes too
- Finally encourage your baby to sort out the shapes of same color as that of the foam sheets (or color papers) and place it on them
Baby moo really loved running around sorting the colors through shapes. He had so much fun, he even made snakes out of the long rectangular shapes and joined the sheets together… and the happiness lasted for ages… 😎
Make this super simple activity at home and enjoy the overloaded happiness and have fun lovelies 😍
Stay tuned!!! For more activities from the ChennaiMom ❤️🙏
