Hunter has been quite interested in his “Busy Bugs” game lately, mostly playing with the bug pieces and not the actual cards. It’s a sequencing game by Discovery Toys that I got at Goodwill, and it’s supposed to be one of those “What comes next?” sequencing toys (like “red fly, yellow fly, red fly, yellow fly… which one comes next?”).
I haven’t ever really played it with him. I was waiting to do the sequencing thing until after we learned it in math (like 2,4,6,8,10,12… which one comes next?). But he got it out yesterday and I saw him figure out a couple of the cards all by himself and got them all right without it ever being explained to him.
But what he really liked was the insect pieces. He’s been playing with them since yesterday and seems quite enthralled by them. Today he was lining them up in rows… not sure what he was imagining, but he sure was focused! He wanted me to “be” some of them and gave me two grasshoppers to play with.
“…of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.”Genesis 6:20
