One of the 'extras' we use in our workboxes that seems to be a big hit is sorting with tongs.
We have a box of foam blocks that I bought at Target for a buck a bag. I think I bought about $2 worth, but I really wanted to stuff all the little baggies with foam blocks in my cart and roll away with a maniacal chuckle. I mean, they were a buck! Muah, ha, ha...
Today, I had the kids sort them by color.
Today, the kids happened upon this "extra" on their schedule strip block thingie at the same time.
Today, they are learning several things:
using different tools
to get a job done
color discrimination (good for TheBoy who is color blind)
And, when it's all done,
fingers are allowed.
To create a "rainbow."

Another Side Note: Yes. We do have school in our jammies. More days than not. Just sayin'...
