Opposites

Opposites cards have been on our shelf pretty long time. Eaton knows most of them but because he likes reading them I still keep them in our school area.
I have two sets of opposites cards. One from Kizclub. I printed cards out, laminated and staple them twice on the left side, like you can see on the picture.




The other set I bought on sale from Borders. (Before they closed it!). It is "Dora The Explorer".


As you can see from the picture, these cards are used a lot. Eaton had so much fun sliding them up and down. I think it is worth to purchase them for learning purposes. Great pictures that keep your baby entertained.

Have a great day!

Hi Ruamulla!
Nice self correcting puzzle!
Lego we have: http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Ultimate-Building-Set-Pieces/dp/B000NO9GT4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307465196&sr=8-1 with slightly different pieces inside. We had duplo lego before, bu about 2 months ago Eaton decided to play with these mini lego pieces. He loves them a LOT!!
Eaton has some wooden truck similar to the airplane you send a link to. He plays with it sometimes, but not so often. Lego is his next "addiction" ;-)
