My 3-year-old daughter absolutely loves to wash dishes. I use it as a reward for finishing her other school work. Today, I set up a wash station at the big sink in the kitchen. I brought in a variety of her play dishes, filled the basin with a couple inches of water and proceeded to teach.

These are more or less an outline of my ideas. I followed this plan with my 3 year old over the course of a week. It worked and she enjoyed herself! (Don't forget it's easiest to give your toddler LOTS of breaks!)

Brown Tree Pictures Activity
Help your child paint their hand and the upper part of their forearm brown and make a brown print on a piece of paper or poster board to create the trunk and branches of a tree. Decorate the branches of the tree according to the season. For winter, add pieces of cotton for snow. For spring, add scrunched up scraps of pink tissue paper for blossoms. For summer, add pieces of green construction paper for trees, and small colored circles to represent fruit, red for apples, orange for peaches, etc... For fall, add scraps of red, orange, and yellow paper to represent leaves.
