Pretend Indoor strawberry Picking

It all started with that Mickey mouse clubhouse episode where Minnie Mouse goes for Strawberry picking. CJ loves Strawberry picking. Wherever she sees a tree with red fruits or red flowers she thinks they r strawberries and she wants to pick them. I had this idea of strawberry picking while creating the egg carton tree.

We pretended decorative corn kernels to be strawberries.I filled in few corn kernels in the Egg carton cups as shown below.

Gave the Egg carton tree to CJ and asked her Whether she will help by picking up the strawberries? She was in real excitement. She started picking up the kernels and put them into the cup.

She was super excited when she had completed picking up all the strawberries. In that excitement she put the corn kernels back into the tree again and asked me shall we play again mommy? I nodded Yes - sure we can!

We also played a counting game with the number of strawberries picked. You can also use Dry beans, strawberry paper clips for this activity.
