What’s Missing Part 2

What’s Missing? Use this DIY Game to promote critical thinking skills in your toddler.
Whats missing puzzle

For this activity, I cut pictures out of magazines and then cut part of each picture off. For example, I cut the top off of the vitamin water bottle and the shoe off of the girl.

I showed B a picture (one at a time) and asked him, “What’s missing?”. He studied the picture, told me what was missing, and then I gave him the two pieces to put together.

This was so simple and easy to prepare and it’s a fun critical thinking opportunity for little ones!

    Oh you clever mommy! My two and a half year old will love this! I’m logging off right away to go find my scissors and a pack of magazines. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I just love this blog! I love how creative the ideas are, yet inexpensive, easy-to-do activities! My kind of blog! I just did the high chair water activity with my 7 month old and he LOVED it! I’m off to cut up a magazine for my 3 year old now!
