Lapbook – Blue’s Clues

Most of the posts so far have been on activities with C. Here’s something that I’ve done recently with G- a lapbook with his favourite character, Blue, the dog from the Nick Jr show Blue’s Clues. G loves watching the show ( I should upload a video of him dancing to the theme song, haha).

Here’s a description of the lapbook I did with him:

Counting
G loves flashcards, so I created a set of number cards with Blue. He has a lot of flashcards, but I’m happy to say that he loves this latest set – he kept pointing at each one and saying “Blue”. To improve the lifespan, I laminated the cards, else they would probably last for 5 minutes before being reduced to paper shreds.

Colouring
G loves scribbling and colouring. He got to choose the colour, and it was no surprise that he chose blue! He really enjoyed this part, adding his favourite colour to his favourite character with gusto.

Puzzle
A simple 4-piece puzzle. C showed G how to fit the pieces together, and he picked it up fairly quickly, most likely because he recognises Blue’s house (it appears at the beginning of every show).

Colours
Colours identification with multicoloured paw prints! Personally, I liked this part the most, it’s so colourful!. No prizes for guessing which paw print G kept flipping.

Comparisons
G is already familiar with the concepts of  “small” and “big”. Here I introduced the word “medium”. He got to paste the different sized pictures of Blue in the corresponding spaces.

Animal vs human prints! Blue’s paw print is a recurring theme in the show (for those not already familiar with the series, Blue leaves her paw print as a clue to guess a certain object). I ran out of blue paint so had to make do with orange. G loved squishing and feeling the paint on his hands – I ended up with a toddler with an orange-streaked face, haha.

Lessons learnt
Basic skills were covered in this lapbook. G also got to work on his fine motor skills. He enjoyed applying the glue and pasting (refused to let go of the glue stick!), as well as colouring and printing.

Lapbooking can be fun even for young toddlers such as G 🙂
