our circle pig

I really enjoyed doing this activity with toddler girl. I was surprised by how well she managed to do it without my help.

Toddler girl sat lovely whilst I cut out the different sized circles. She talked about ‘big’ and ‘baby’ circles and began to line them up in sizes and group them together.

Once all the circles had been cut out, I explained what we were going to do. I showed her that the biggest circle was the pigs’ body, and then I asked if she could find the pigs head. I was pleasantly surprised when she gave me the next biggest circle.

I told toddler girl what each circle represented and she decided where they would go on the pigs’ body.

When I gave her a ‘body part’, she would match it to her own body part. “Pig nose… girl nose” She made me giggle when I gave her the pigs’ tail. She looked at me and then round at her bottom. She looked confused for a minute. “Pig tail… no girl tail”

After we had finished the activity Toddler girl came running over to me with a silk scarf, She held it up to me “ Girl tail” Laughing I tied it around her waist and she ran around the room wiggling her tail
